Rail Transfers

Return rail transfers...

Return rail transfers are conducted on a first come first served basis and cost from €75 per person.

Please agree detailed dates and times with us prior to booking your travel arrangements.

Brive la Gaillarde is our preferred rail terminal...

We collect you in our own seven-seater MPV/People Carrier from our preferred location of Brive la Gaillarde rail terminal (SNCF) at around 13:30 hrs each Monday.

We return you in time for the 09:45 hrs departure the following Saturday.

Use the following English language website for info on train times and bookings:

Alternative transfer schedule/location...

If you want a transfer at another time or on another day, please EMAIL US or Tel: 0033 (0)553 302405 in order to discuss the possibilities.

We occasionally run return transfers to Condat/Le Lardin and Sarlat.

Our nearest rail terminals...

Brive la Gaillarde, Condat/Le Lardin and Sarlat are our nearest rail terminals, being, respectively, a 45min, 25 min and 30min car journey to us.

Brive la Gaillarde is our preferred choice for running return transfers.


The train station at Brive la Gaillarde is a minimum 2hr round trip, depending on traffic and the lateness of flights, etc.

We use our own vehicles and fuel, and utilise the services of a paid driver because we are too busy preparing for the next cooking course to run transfers ourselves.

We charge a nominal €37 Euros per person for a one-way transfer. Therefore, we operate this service at a loss if we are picking up fewer than four people, but do so anyway because it’s the kind of personal touch our guests enjoy.

By conrast, a taxi from/to Brive la Gaillarde would cost you a minimum €90 Euros one-way.
