Getting to the Languedoc

From the UK and Ireland most people fly by commercial airline and hire a car at the airport of arrival. From mainland Europe most visitors drive by private motor car. This is also possible from the UK and Ireland by taking a ferry to France or using the Channel Tunnel (popularly called the Chunnel) . You cannot drive through the Chunnel but you can take your vehicle on a Eurostar Train through it.
