How to get there
Airport: Bergerac: 28.0 mi
Railway: Marmande: 7.5 mi
Many of the major budget airlines fly into Bergerac and both budget and schedule airlines fly into Bordeaux.
Brive and Limoges airports are approximately 2 hours drive
We recommend 'Buggs' car hire. when flying into Bergerac. They are family owned company and competitively priced. However, book early as they are a busy during the peak periods.
Activities nearby
