Calais to Le Repaire is 420 miles by road. Using the autoroutes and the ‘Periferique’ around Paris the journey usually takes around six hours by car. If you are traveling from the west of Britain then the Portsmouth ferry makes most sense – and can reduce the time on the road in France. The journey from Le Havre or Caens can be up to two hours shorter than that from Calais. Wherever you are crossing the channel, we can give you the best route for your onward journey by road to Le Repaire.

British Airways also operates flights from Gatwick to Bordeaux (about a 2 1/2 hour drive to Le Repaire).
"Thank you so much for a really lovely holiday, couldn’t have had a better time. Le Repaire is beautiful and the views are amazing! Martinet is gorgeous and as soon as John saw T bags in the kitchen he knew it was going to be a good holiday. You have made us feel very welcome, thank you all. Love to stay again sometime."- Steph & John, Liverpool
"We have had a fantastic, relaxing week of unbroken sunshine spent largely in the pool. Earlier in the week, we managed canoeing on the lake, velo-rail which was fantastic and some meals out. We recommend "Le Marmite" in Le Dorat and particularly the setting of the cafe by the river in Bellac. Do not miss this part of the town as it is so pretty. Karen & Kevin have made us feel like part of the family, they could not have been more welcoming. Thank you..........Thank you very much for being so kind and welcoming. I have loved it here and would love to come back. Spent most of the time by the pool which was great. I had fun playing in the pool too. Thank you very much."- The Clayden family, London
