ANGOULÊME        LA CHARENTE        FRANCE

The peaceful rural setting of Les Jesuites, is amazingly only 10 min from Angoulême

and 3.5 km to the TGV station  with good Eurostar connections.

Paris / Montparnasse is 2:20 hrs away, Lille Europe 4 hrs (Eurostar).

The TGV brings passengers from London to Angoulême in about 7:00 hrs.

We are 100 km away from various airports served by Ryan Air, Flybe, Easy Jet, BA and Air France.

They include Poitiers to the north, Bordeaux to the south and Limoges to the east.

La Rochelle airport is about 130 km to the west.

On the other side of town the N10 auto route runs south from Paris to Bordeaux and on towards the Pyrenees and Spain.


From the channel ports:

The A1 takes you to Paris where you follow the ring road and directions for the A10 and Bordeaux,

or you can take the A16 to Rouen and then the A28 towards Tours

where you join the A10 / N10 for Bordeaux (thus avoiding Paris).

From there you continue as follows:

Driving from the north:

Take the last (4th) turning off the N10 for Angoulême signed also for the hospital Girac.

At the next 4 roundabouts follow signs for Libourne and Perigueux, at the 5th roundabout

follow sign for Perigueux passing a water tower on right.

At the 6th roundabout take the 3rd exit signed for Le Petit Fresquet.

After 400 m turn right down the first tarmac lane Le Chemin de Jesuites au Lion (immediately after a children's crossing sign).

Follow the lane down, after 100 m you see below you on the left two stone houses, ours is the second one

and you will find our drive at the next junction with the green letter box.

Driving from the south:

Take the first turning off the N10 for Angoulême signed also for the hospital Girac and follow directions as above

except one roundabout less.

If you cross the huge viaduct you have gone too far and must return to the previous roundabout.
