This summer my husband would like to go to Germany whilst I'd prefer France so we are thinking of Alsace-Lorraine to suit both of us! We will be driving from Manchester. I am trying to decide whether to get Dover-Calais ferry then drive on via Reims or to get the more expensive overnight Hull-Zeebrugge ferry and then make our way through Belgium perhaps staying in Gent (which i've visited once and loved). We'll be with young daughter so want to break up the journey.Are there any recommended places to stay between Calais and Alsace? Any advice greatly appreciated!!!
