Travelling by Air and Car Rental

Many of our guests use Bergerac Airport for their journey, which is approximately 1 hour’s drive from the gites. The airport is small in size, making travelling to and from the area relatively simple and stress-free. During the summer there are daily direct flights from much of the UK and elsewhere in Europe to Bergerac, including by airlines Ryanair and Jet2.

Travel can also be convenient from both Toulouse Airport and Bordeaux Airport, although these are slightly further away from the gites (around 2 hours) and are much larger in size than Bergerac; as a result, however, they receive flights from more destinations.

Bergerac Airport has excellent rental car facilities, which are used by many of our guests. Quotes are available directly from Europcar, Hertz and Buggs Car Hire, which all have stations within the airport. Similar services are available from Toulouse Airport and Bordeaux Airport.
