< Getting here

le Fourquet

Driving. A quick route by car from the north or south is via the A20 Motorway which is some 18 kms. to the east.

By Train. The direct train from Paris to Gourdon station takes about five hours, so it is possible to leave London at breakfast and arrive here in time for dinner. We can arrange to meet you from Gourdon station and return you for your homeward journey. Hire cars are available at the station, but need to be pre-booked. [Considerable changes have been threatened by SCNF - the French Railways authority which has caused much protest. So it wise to check out the latest timetables.]


A new international airport The Brive/Dordorgne Valley Airport. opened in June 2010 40 minutes north of here –

It is geared to have low-cost airline and connections to all European capitals.

There is at present an easy link to The City Airport, London and another to Manchester. More links are certain to follow.

We can advise on organising a multiple gte holiday and guests can walk/motor/cycle from place to place.
