How to get there

If you want to get there quickly then fly and hire a car. Rodez is the nearest airport but has limited flights. Bergerac is better and there is a lovely drive west along the River Dordogne to Bretenoux. Toulouse is further south but sometimes has the best flight deals.

If you hire a car make sure you check its condition THOROUGHLY before driving out of the airport, including its tyres.

If you would prefer to go by train, Brive is the nearest big station and you can hire a car there. Biars Bretenoux is the local station.

If you go by ferry, the drive from Caen, Le Havre or St Malo is shorter than from Calais though the crossing will be dearer. We try to avoid the motorways (except past Le Mans - if you go into the city you have great difficulty getting out again!) because they are so expensive and the secondary routes marked Bis are so much more interesting. We often book a B&B on route though it is quite possible to do the journey in one day.
