About the neighbourhood
Limousin-Cottage is ideally situated for you to explore the whole of the egion, via the toll-free A20 motorway, which is just a 5 minute drive away. On mid-Summers day the area participates hugely in the very popular music festival, with free open air performances in virtually all the towns, which end with fireworks. The festival in Limoges, the capital city, is very vibrant. Limoges is also a nice place for a day trip and is famous for its porcelain manufacturing. The museum of porcelain is a must for a visit, as also is the quarter de bouchers in the old part of the city. Also not to be missed is the very poignant martyrs village of Oradour sur Glane.

Getting around
A car is recommended to appreciate all this beautiful region has to offer. There is a bus service of sorts, which goes to Limoges via the scenic route, and also a railway station at La Souterraine, 15 minutes drive away, for mainline services to and from Paris.

How to get there
Airport: Limoges: 65.0 km
Railway: La Souterraine: 15.0 km
Ferry: Calais: 480.0 km
Mailhac sur Benaize is easily accessible by road from the toll-free North/South A20 motorway. The village is about a 5 minute drive away from junctions 21 and 22. It is roughly a 6 hr drive from Calais, 5 hrs from Dieppe. Limoges airport, served by Ryanair and Flybe from various UK airports, is only 45 minutes away by car. British Airways flights from Gatwick to Limoges from May to September. Poitiers airport is a good alternative - a little further away at about a 1 hour 30 min drive away. If flying, a hire car is essential, as the area is very rural. The village is quiet and a great place to relax and put your feet up, and the nearest town with shops, bars, etc is just 2 kms or so along the road.
