I think you're going to find that this is a region of France very poorly served by public transport -- buses are scheduled exclusively for local commuters and schoolchildren, not tourists.

Renting a car is truly the best way to see this area.

Sunshine is absolutely correct, the bus leaves my village of Nouic at 6.30 in the morning and returns at 6.30 at night, you do need a car to make the most of this beautiful part of France, Also, think of staying in Nouic as you are only 18 minutes from Oradour and there are some good places to stay.

Just type in Nouic on TA and read the comments of them all.

Thanks. Three buses a day.

I agree on the car rental, but when I looked at what a one day car rental from Limoges would cost, it was crazy. Possibly I'll look for a two day rental from Paris as that's where I'll be coming from and returning to.

Yup, a one-day car rental normally costs about the same as a 3-day rental.

StCirq,

It's looking more like, from the schedule you linked to, the 7:55 bus from Limoges arriving at Ctre de la Memorie at 8:26 (reasonably close to the 9:00 opening) and bus back at 11:55 to Limoges give us close to three hours there. Unless I can find a reasonable car rental for a day or two.

Europtravlr, that's because this thread is over a year old and timetables have been updated.

Use this link instead:

hautevienneencar.cg87.fr/index.php?id=4

You would want Line 12. There are very few buses, as others have pointed out.

Thank you for the updated link! It looks like it's possible to have a 4 hour visit that will work with the buses (catching the bus at 12:35 and arriving around 13:00; then catching the 17:35 bus back.)

Note that the bus doesn't run on Sundays and Public Holidays, so make sure you don't plan you visit for one of those days, and also that the bus goes to the modern village of Oradour, but that is only a short walk away.
