Limousin-Cottage. Holiday rental near Limoges, France.

The cottage is behind the church in Mailhac.

Limousin-Cottage is easily accessible by road or air. The nearest airport is Limoges,  a 45 minute drive away. We are a 10 min drive from junctions 21/22 of the A20 motorway - from where you can easily access the whole Limousin region. The village is around a six hour drive from the Channel Ports.

From the channel ports, it is roughly a 6 hour drive to Mailhac sur Benaize, 87160. 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 Manchester, 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.
