We are located just 25 minutes West of Bergerac airport and an hour and 15 minutes East of Bordeaux airport. Bergerac airport has a vast array of flights coming in from the UK with “low cost” carriers such as FlyBE and Ryanair. Have a look at our “Flight Routes“ page for more information. There are many direct flights to Bordeaux from various European cities including London (Stansted and Gatwick), Amsterdam, Munich, Dublin, Waterford, Stockholm and Basel. We can arrange airport transfers and hire cars for you – just let reception know at the time of booking. All major Hire Car agencies operate from the airports (Avis, Hertz, Europcar). Toulouse, 2 hours’ drive away, connects with many more destinations.
Directions by Road
Many guests drive to Château des Vigiers. If you are driving from the UK, we recommend taking the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo. We’re about 6 hours drive south from St Malo – an easy drive mostly on motorway. If you’re coming from the Channel Tunnel or Calais, we’re 8.5 hours drive away and we’d advise driving via Rouen and Le Mans rather than get stuck in the Paris péripherique!

Directions by Train
Some guests choose to take the super fast TGV train from Paris. It takes 3 hours to Libourne station, on the Bordeaux line, which is only a 50 minute drive from Chateau des Vigiers and we can organise a taxi transfer, though some guests prefer to take the local shuttle train to Ste-Foy-la-Grande (10 minutes from us).
