The amazing TGV - Train à Grande Vitesse, or High-Speed Train -

does what it says on the tin, whizzing you down from Paris to either

Poitiers in less than 2 hours or Angoulême in just two and a half hours.

Car hire is available from both stations, and both have connecting trains

to Ruffec, just a 25 minute drive from our gîte.

We would stress that a car is rather a necessity down here.

We are in the middle of the countryside

- which is one of the reasons you're planning to visit us -

so you will need wheels to get to all the great attractions around us.


See you soon!

By Car

Our village of Loubillé is a 7-hour drive from the ferry or the tunnel at Calais,

and even less from the ports of St Malo, Caen, Le Havre, Dieppe or Bordeaux.

The toll roads are very fast and efficient - though you'll pay a price for that luxury -

or you could take the scenic route and get to know the gorgeous countryside

on your way down to us.

By Plane

The area is well served by airports, all within one or two hours of our gîte,

and all with car hire facilities available.

Visitors can fly to Limoges, Poitiers, Bordeaux or La Rochelle,

dependent on departure airport and time of year.
