Travelling To The Dordogne

time-to-travel picture

Travelling to the Dordogne from the UK has never been easier. You can get here by car or plane but you will need a vehicle while you are here with us. Rural France has very little in the way of public transport or taxis.  At the bottom of the page is a google map to help you plan your route.

car-iconWe are approximately 10 minutes drive from Junction 55 of the A20 which runs straight down from the north of the country and is ideal if you are coming down from one of the ferry ports or the Channel Tunnel. It is a toll road but there are alternatives – your sat nav should have no problem identifying a toll-free route.


ferry-iconThe ferry port of Caen is slightly closer than any of the alternatives but they are all quite convenient.  There are several large ferry operators with good schedules and you can find further info at P & O Ferries, Direct Ferries, Brittany Ferries and DFDS.


train-iconThe EuroTunnel Shuttle from Folkestone to Calais is a quick & popular alternative to a ferry crossing. You can find all the information at EuroTunnel.



plane-iconThe airports of Limoges, Bergerac and Toulouse are all less than 2 hours from us and have excellent UK schedules. The new airport at Brive-Vallee de la Dordogne is only 25 minutes away but has a more limited schedule at the moment. The airport at Rodez is a good choice if you are visiting us from Dublin. All are serviced by the “budget” carriers and all have excellent car hire services on-site.

Here’s a google map to help you plan your journey. We do send detailed directions when you book with us but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like any guidance on travelling to the Dordogne while you plan your trip.

Enjoy your journey and see you soon.
