Getting to us


There are three airports, all within about 1 1/4 hours of us: 


Toulouse (Toulouse-Blagnac)

Brive (Brive–Souillac Airport)

Bergerac (Bergerac Dordogne Périgord Airport) 


If you come to either Brive or Bergerac you will need to hire a car as there is no public transport from either, and taxis are very expensive.  Cars can be easily hired at all three airports (though do book in advance).


Toulouse is much bigger than the other two and has fights to destinations in most parts of the UK.  If you are NOT hiring a car, therefore, we recommend you book flights to Toulouse.


We will arrange one pick up and return directly from Toulouse airport at the beginning and end of the holiday.  Obviously we need to try and coordinate the times of the arrivals and departures so that guests are not strung out over too long a period and kept hanging about for too long.  If you want to be included in the transport to and from the airport please try and liase with us BEFORE you actually book your flights.


If you are unable to coordinate flight times to coincide with our transfers, then it is possible to take a bus from the airport to Toulouse station and get a train to Cahors.  We will then pick you up from Cahors train station.


You can also come by train (via Paris - which is about five hours from us) and we will pick you up from Cahors station.


If you are driving, we have plenty of space for parking and we will send you directions.  We are about eight hours (driving time) from Calais, or about 12 hours from London going via the tunnel.


FLEXIBILITY - we are aware that it is sometimes much cheaper to book fights a day earlier or later, and occasionally it may be easier not to come or go on the start or end days of the course.  If therefore you wanted to bring your week back or forwards a day, do get in touch beforehand and we will do all we can to help make this possible.
