How to get there
It is really necessary to have a car whilst holidaying here, although possible to travel to Valence d’Agen or Agen and take a taxi. The bikes in the house would enable you to gather provisions, but the extent of this beautiful region would be lost if you don’t have a car available.
The house is an easy 50 minute drive from Toulouse Airport (BA/Easyjet etc) and 75 minutes from Bordeaux Airport (again BA/Easyjet). Flights can easily be checked through http://www.skyscanner.net. We recommend that you hire a car from the airport (try www.holidayautos.co.uk or www.carrentals.co.uk).
If driving from the channel ports, you can avoid getting lost in Paris (as so many do!) by following signs to Paris until you see signs to Bordeaux and then on towards Toulouse! Alternatively, you can go round the ‘Peripherique’. The house is about five kilometres from the A62/E72 motorway and so easily connecting to the excellent French motorway system.
It is 11-12 hours from Calais (whichever route around Paris) or – for those who are happy to start further west (and avoid Paris totally) – it’s about eight hours from Caen.
Arrive in Paris for dinner on the Eurostar from the UK (www.eurostar.com) and then take a south bound sleeper train or TGV to Toulouse, Bordeaux or Agen. From there, you will need to hire a car or catch a local train to Valence d’Agen.
