Le Chêne Vert is situated in the heart of the Limousin countryside, yet is still easily accessible from the A20 auto route and Limoges airport. There are daily flights into Limoges operated by Flybe and Ryanair from many destinations within the UK. There are many attractions within easy reach to keep the family amused.


We are 450 miles from Calais. It is approximately 6 1/2 hours drive from here and all the other major ferry ports. The Auto route is generally quieter than UK motorways with many "Aires" or service stations along the way. The service stations are an excellent place to stop for refreshment if needed.
