There are 2 major low cost airlines servicing our area, namely Ryanair and Flybe. The nearest airport to the lake is Limoges and transfers to and from this airport are free of charge. It is possible to fly to Limoges from the following UK airports:

With Ryanair: East Midlands, Liverpool, London Stansted

With Flybe: Southampton

It is possible to fly to Bergerac, Bordeaux, La Rochelle or Angouleme where hire cars are available to complete your journey to us, but this will involve a minimum of a 2 hour drive. Alternatively call us and ask for a quote to be picked up from these airports.

There are various internet sites available to give you detailed instructions on how to reach us from the various ports along the northern coast of France. All routes are fairly easy to navigate with the possible exception of the Paris ring road, where you should expect delays. So if you are travelling from Calais or Boulogne you may want to add an extra hour on your journey time to allow for this. If you use the main motorways or A roads you will incur charges at the toll booths along the way, but they are normally inexpensive and the A roads remain the quickest routes remembering that the speed limits are 130 km/h in good weather conditions and 110 km/h in wet weather. It is obligatory in France to carry the warning red triangle and reflective jackets in case of breakdown and don’t forget to check with your car insurance company to ensure coverage whilst abroad.

Whichever route you choose, you will find that all the roads are very well signposted so it is quite difficult to get lost. The roads are quiet in comparison to those in the UK and driving in France is normally a pleasure.
