How to get there
The village of Albas is situated 25km west of Cahors and about 50km east of Villeneuve sur Lot. There are several ways of getting to Albas from Cahors - the most direct being the D911 (direction Villeneuve sur Lot). The alternative route along the river via Pradines (signposted as you are leaving Cahors), Douelle and Luzech is more picturesque as you follow the meandering river passing many vineyards and chateaux on the way. The drive from Cahors takes about 20-30 minutes. La Carriere is located at the bottom end of the village next to the river and boule playing area between the Restaurant du Port and the Bar L'Espanade.
We feel confident that you will enjoy your holiday in this desirable location and await further advice. If you would like any assistance with the best routes to get to us from anywhere we can assist you!
Directions from Paris
From Paris you will have to take the A10 motorway which goes south to Orleans, then the A71 motorway to Vierzon, then the A20 to Chateauroux, Limoges, Brive, and Cahors. Take exit Cahors Nord and follow signs to Cahors. You will arrive at a roundabout as soon as you get to the outskirts of Cahors, go right (D811/D911) towards Villeneuve-sur-Lot, Prayssac, etc. Once you get to Castelfranc, you want the 2nd Albas turning on the left. Go over Castelfranc bridge and at the end of the road turn left. As you enter Albas take the first left turn signposted Pech del Gall, and Brasserie L'Esplanade. You pass the bar on the right carry on up the hill, La Carriere is the first house on the left overlooking the river.
Directions from Toulouse Airport (Blagnac)
When you leave the airport stay in the right lane - follow signs to Bordeaux, Agen, (Paris) and join the A62 motorway. You take a ticket at the peage and carry on until you see a sign for Montauban, Limoges and Paris (A20) which takes you off the peage (costs 2.30 Euros). Stay in the left lane leaving the peage - direction Montauban, Limoges and Paris (A20).
Continue on the road which is the route nationale (N20, E9), bypassing Montauban reaching the new motorway (A20, E9) to Cahors. You take a ticket at the peage and carry on until you see a sign for Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot (Exit 58) which will take you off the peage (costs 2.90 Euros).
Follow signs to Cahors, and carry on until you pass Intersport and Carrefour Supermarket on your left and at the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit towards Villeneuve sur Lot and Brive.
Go along that road through the outcrops and over a long bridge.
Either...... take the first exit (on your right) if you would like to drive through vineyards following the river Lot.
Take a left at the first set of lights signposted Luzech and Pradines, straight through the 2nd lights and that road takes you winding through vineyards all the way to Albas, through Douelle and Luzech - it's a nicer route to take than the D811.
Or....... carry on over a bridge to the roundabout and 3rd exit onto the D811/D911(left at the roundabout) towards Villeneuve sur Lot and straight on until you get to Castelfranc (about 25 min drive) and take the 2nd left (2nd Albas turning) at the bridge at Castelfranc and follow signs to Albas.
