About the neighborhood
Situated on the border of Charente and Dordogne departments, Aubeterre sur Dronne has an exceptional heritage which, combined with its beautiful natural surroundings and a climate akin to the Cote d'azur, makes it the perfect place to visit.

From the house, you will be in walking distance of 12 restaurants in and around the village - not bad going for only 450 residents!

in addition, there are tennis courts within a 5 minute walk, as well as kayak hire for the river Dronne, and a man-made beach - perfect for a change of scene from the swimming pool in the garden.

How to get there
Airport: Bordeaux: 49.7 mi
Railway: Angouleme: 37.3 mi
Ferry: Caen: 329.3 mi
There are various ways of getting to Aubeterre, many of which depend on the season.

Air - there are frequent flights from UK airports to both Bordeaux (1h15) and Bergerac (1h); you will find all the major car hire companies at both airports.

Ferry - we tend to take the Portsmouth-Caen route; Aubeterre is only a 5 hour drive from Caen, ideal for taking the overnight crossing and getting to Aubeterre for a late lunch. From the chunnel & ferry ports of Calais it is a 7-hour drive (or so).

Train - the new high-speed Paris-Bordeaux link is now operational, which has reduced the travel time from almost 4 hours to just over 2 (to travel 360 miles!). It takes the complete London-Bordeaux train journey to a shade under 6 hours, including the changeover in Paris. From Bordeaux you can either...
