Paris is a comfortable 6 hours driving using the péage auto route arriving through Mussidan or Perigueux exits.  Maison Porte del Marty is directly opposite  St Pierre-èn-Liens, the church of Lalinde. A handsome Gothic design, if you have found the church, you have found us !  We also sell outdoor garden furniture so don’t be confused by a front yard that more resembles a fabulous outdoor café ….

 

We are on the main train line between Bordeaux and Sarlat with a link to Perigueux > Agen > Toulouse > Mediterranean Coast at Le Buisson, 15 minutes East of Lalinde. For the train traveller it’s a simple process to take the TGV high speed train from Paris Gare Montparnasse to Bordeaux and then transfer on the regional train to Sarlat which stops at Lalinde, there are further scheduled trains  travelling to Perigueux which stop at Bergerac and Le Buisson, both very close to us. From Bordeaux you can carry on to Bayonne, Biarritz, St Jean de Luz and Spain through the Basque region….and then connect to any of the main Spanish cities, Spain has a train system equal to France.

For train travellers there are plenty of day trips available from Lalinde using a train pass. You can visit Sarlat, a beautiful town built out of a gold coloured stone along with great markets, food, shopping and culture. Perigueux, the ” big smoke ” for the Dordogne, an interesting town with plenty of small lanes and architectural surprises to feast on including St Front a magnificent church in the city centre, even for a non religious person, you can’t help but be charmed by the design and atmosphere…we have Bordeaux, a beautiful city, really a small version of Paris with 100’s of years of history and character to enjoy, St Emillion, one of the more famous of the local wine areas with a fabulous church carved out of a stone face and a huge choice of places to take a leisurely lunch with a glass ( or two ! ) of wine. Bergerac is a pretty place with a nice ” old town ” to wander around in, take a trip on an old river trading boat, visit the local wine museum or tobacco museum, realax at one of the great outside restaurants and cafés, say hello to the statue of Cyrano de Bergerac.

Bergerac Airport  has excellent connections to many parts of UK, Ireland, Holland, Belgium and Paris. There are many options in summer but a more limited choice in the winter months. Another alternative is flying into Bordeaux or Toulouse and arriving by train.
