How to get there
We can be reached if flying closest airport is Poitiers, Limoges. Bordeaux and La Rochelle are 2 hours by road with easy drives. All airports have cars for hire. We do offer a collection service should you prefer us to meet you at the airport for a small charge. If you are driving from Calais it is a 7 hour journey with good roads mainly by Auto route. You can also take the Euro star from London either changing in Lille or Paris which is about 6 hours. Again car rentals are available in Poitiers which is a 40 minute drive from Genouille. Or a local train from Poitiers takes you to Ruffec and we can meet you at the station by arrangement.
