Arsenal - two excellent sites:

www.aaroadwatch.ie/routes (click on the Europe option) and I know theres a UK version but...

also

www.viamichelin.com

My own experiences have taught me to add about 10% to the times given as they don't account for slow drivers or roadworks etc. (They seem to be worked out on the basis of a steady max speed limit and no red traffic lights!!)

Also - bathroom breaks.. Aire de ..... means bathrooms. Some have just basic facilities - bathroom. Others have shops, restaurants and petrol. However the motorway petrol is far dearer than those in the hypermarches. So, if you are running low and see signs for a Carrefour etc I'd head there.

If you travel from Calais via Abbeville - Rouen - Le Mans - Angers - Nantes - St Jean de Monts, nearly all autoroute, it is almost 700km. As a rough guide, if you work on 100km an hour = 7 hrs driving time + stops. More than 1 driver is a good idea, especially on unknown roads.
