The Linden House is situated in a small hamlet called Les Quatre Chemins on the D50 just outside a village called La Charse (usually the nearest place your sat nav will know). The easiest way to get to us is via Guéret, off the N145. The N145 connects with the A20, which is a major motorway on the Paris – Toulouse route. Take the N145 off the A20 at junction 23 in the direction of Guéret/Montluçon, come off at junction 47 and follow the signs for Ahun and/or Aubusson. This should take you through Guéret and on to the D942.
Continue along the D942, passing through Sainte-Feyre. About 5 or 6 km past Sainte-Feyre, take a right on to the D50, sign-posted La Charse. Keep following this road through a couple of very small villages for about 5 minutes and you will reach Les Quatre Chemins. We are the only house on the right. If you are using sat nav this may bring you the back way through La Charse. If so, continue through La Charse and out the other side and we are the only house on the left in the next village.
A collection service from the airport to the Gite can be arranged at a small fee, a fraction of the price of a taxi or public transport – just ask!
The nearest airport is Limoges Bellegarde, which is served by Ryanair and FlyBe and is about 1hr15 from our house. Most major car rental companies operate from here. To get to us from the airport, follow the signs for the A20 and join this motorway in the direction of Paris. Come off at junction 23 and join the N145 in the direction of Guéret/Montluçon. Exit the N145 at Guéret at junction 47 and follow the directions as above.
There is a train link from Paris to La Souterraine, our nearest train station, with 3-4 trains a day taking just less than 3 hours. There are bus connections from La Souterraine train station to Guéret and Ahun that coincide with arriving trains. A car is essential in Creuse to get around. If you are arriving by train and need to hire a car please let us know and we will suggest the best way to do this locally.
For those coming by boat, we would suggest using the ViaMichelin Route Planner to calculate your best route. Entering La Charse as the town and 23150 as the postcode will give you directions to within half a kilometre of our house. According to this site we are 6hr42 from Calais and 5hr54 from Caen.
