How to Get Here

The villa is approximately 1.5 hours’ drive from Bordeaux airport and approximately 1 hour 20 minutes’ drive from La Rochelle airport.  The latter two airports are the most convenient, but other airports in the region are: Limoges (just over 2 hours’ drive), Poitiers (1.75 hours’ drive) and Bergerac (2.5 hours’ drive). It is around 50 minutes’ drive to the villa from Angoulême railway station.

We recommend that you hire a car if flying or arriving by train (car hire is available at all the airports/railway station mentioned above), since there is no public transport available directly to/from the property.

The villa is a manageable drive from all the northern French ports.  It is approximately 4-5 hours’ drive from the port of St-Malo, and 6-7 hours’ drive from Caen, Roscoff and Cherbourg.

Directions from any of the airports or ferry ports will be sent to you before your travel date.
