Driving from eurotunnel Calais to Loches

Driving from eurotunnel Calais to Loches Any advice welcome . Looked on google maps don’t really want to go through Paris.

So most probably A16 then A28 . How much are tolls.? would like to maybe miss them out if possible ? Never driven this far before only in opposite direction. Any advice where to stop off for lunch as going on Sunday really looking forward to it.

You can get detailed driving directions, reasonable estimates of driving time, and costs (tolls and fuel) from www.viamichelin.com

You can avoid Paris by going A16 A28 via Rouen, which could be a good place to stop. The journey will take at least 5h30 of driving (plus stops) if you stay on the autoroutes. The tolls will be €46, but avoiding tolls will add another 2 hours to the journey.

Not taking the autoroute means a speed limit of 80 kph.

Rouen - le Mans - Tours, then fiollow the signs from the Autoroute from Loches (exit 23, turn left after the peage). Leave more time if travelling athe weekend, but the only real traffic you will encounter will be on the troads leading to/from Paris:

The A13 after Rouen (and Rouen itself)

The A11 around le Mans

the A10 Around Tours
