Getting around
St Jean de Cole is a pleasant walk of about 700 mtrs along a quiet country lane that partially follows the river Cole . Motorists will find there is generally hardly any traffic around here, even on the main roads. There is no bus service locally. The train station at Thiviers has connections to many major destinations. The Voie Verte is a 17km stretch of converted 19th century railway line that links Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière to Thiviers via Saint-Jean-de-Côle. It’s great for summer cycling and walking as it’s well shaded by oaks, pines and acacias. Dordogne cycle hire provides a range of bikes and associated equipment for the whole family including electric bikes. Best to contact them in advance
