Please note that we are situated just after the hamlet of LUBAC (and 3 kms before LEMPS), when following the D532 from Tournon in the direction of St Félicien.

Getting here from the UK

Channel crossing and driving. We are 530 miles from Calais, mostly motorway, takes at least 8-9 hours. Recommended method of crossing is Eurotunnel (http://www.eurotunnel.com).

During July and August Tournon-sur-Rhone can become very busy, so we recommend (if you are travelling south) that you leave the A7 at Sortie 12 rather than Sortie 13. Follow the N7 and cross the Rhone at Andancette/Andance, then follow the N86 to Saint-Jean de Muzols. Turn right after the church and head straight up the hill to Lubac.

Train by Eurostar and TGV. The most comfortable and stress free way to get here from London St Pancras, Ebbsfleet or Ashford in Kent to Valence via Paris or Lille Europe. Hire a car from Valence TGV, half an hour’s drive away.

Flights. There are lots of options, including British Airways from Heathrow to Lyon, three flights a day at http://www.britishairways.com and Easyjet from Stansted to Lyon at http://www.easyjet.com. Hire a car from Lyon, we are about an hour and half’s drive from the airport. There are also flights from some locations to Grenoble airport, which is even closer than Lyon.
