    Le Havre to Caen there are tolls at Pont de Normandie and then two further tolls.I am not sure of current rates for a motorhome but probably about €15.
    Caen to Rennes A84 toll free.
    Rennes to Nantes N137 dual carriageway toll free.
    Go anticlockwise round Nantes ring road to exit 48 and then exit at J2 and take D137 to La Rochelle.
    Hope this helps Bonne route

    Le Pont is worth doing, it's worth every cent of whatever you have to pay - it really is brilliant, seriously. Unless of course you WANT to go the extra 100km along the river to the next bridge and thus avoid the toll, I mean! After le pont, you have the choice - quickly and pay the tolls or a meander through Normandie and enjoy the countryside, mayhap visiting the odd Calvados distillery or 3 en route? or other places. (Think 'Stratford on Avon' , but BROWN and white ........)
