When you arrive in Brantome

Getting to the house from Brantome town centre,

With the Abbaye on your right and river to your left proceed towards Bourdeilles. D78

You will pass the Moulin d L’ Abbaye Hotel on your left, as you turn the slight left-hand bend and passing the first terraced housing block, 200m ahead you will see a long wall fronting the caves and at the end – our house is on the right. It is an end terrace town house with a balcony and a large gravel entrance to its right in front of the grand grotte (cave).

Pull up to the left on the road and go across to the house side door.  Alternatively drive into the cave far enough to be under it and unload. Then park your car as below. You will need to let us have a time of arrival so we can arrange a meet and greet but if not possible do not worry we will let you know where the key will be in the key safe.

From the opposite direction

If you are approaching Brantome from the bypass (Bourdeilles or Angouleme side) take the turning for Bourdeilles D78, after turning of the ring road drive 200m, at the T junction turn left D78, travel for approx. 2km to the house and Brantome (3 mins) as you come into the village boundary the house will be on the left after approx. 600m.

As the river becomes clearly parallel to the road we are a short way further on the left next to a large cave entrance. The house number is 30 and is the only one with a balcony.


Lots of options: – Parking may be opposite the house outside the garden (park as close to the stone as possible, at either side of the cave entrance so not to block access. At the side of the house outside the ground floor lounge (just move the flower pots and return prior your end of holiday departure).

Our neighbour when not using has said we can use the ‘private no parking’ area (off road) near our garden.   If he has his camping car there you can park up close it it and just leave a note saying  #30 and if he does need to  move it Daniel will ask but normally he doesn’t move it very often and he parks between two locations x weeks in one and ditto for the other. If it’s empty you can use it.

Of course you can temporary park just in side the cave to unload but we must leave access to the two gated entrances for the Mairie and another neighbour. All pretty common sense parking really.

As always anywhere, parking is at the owners risk
