You may also want to consider Poitier or Limoges airport, both under 2 hour drive to the farmhouse.

If you are staying with us for longer there are a few other options too.

You can take a ferry from Portsmouth/Newhaven to Dieppe/Caen. Drive times once in France can vary, usually between 4.5 hours to 6.5 hours depending on which port you choose.

Or you can travel my favourite way! Eurostar to Paris (2 hours and 16 minutes), have lunch in Paris, then grab a TGV for a scenic trip to Angoulême, just 30 mins away from Maison Des Hiboux
