Limousin-Cottage. Holiday rental near Limoges, France.

How to find us.

Limousin-Cottage is easily accessible by road or air. The nearest airport is Limoges,  a 40 minute drive away. Poitiers airport is also within easy reach. We are a 10 minute drive from junctions 21/22 of the A20 toll-free motorway - from where you can easily access the whole Limousin region.

From the channel ports, it is roughly a 6-7 hour drive to Mailhac sur Benaize. The nearest town with a supermarket, fuel station, boulangeries etc., St Sulpice Les Feuilles, is only about 1 mile away (you could walk along the back lanes if feeling energetic!)

As well as the easily accessible airport connections, the town of La Souterraine, in the Creuse dept, is about a 15 minute drive from the cottage, and has an SNCF station, where you can take the TGV fast train. Our daughter regularly travels by train from Yorkshire right to La Souterraine on a combined ticket.

Travelling from the North of England?

There are excellent, great value flights to Limoges from Leeds/Bradford, East Midlands, and Liverpool, with Ryanair. An alternative and very easy route is Hull to Zeebrugge, with P&O ferries. It is a very comfortable overnight crossing, very relaxing, and with a great evening meal and breakfast, live entertainment in the bars, a good night's rest and arrival at Zeebrugge at around 8.30 in the morning, which gives you all day for the drive South to the Limousin.
