Car hire

Once you arrive at the airport you will need a car. To visit the enormous amount of tourist attractions within the Dordogne a car is essential. The usual car hire companies can be found at the airports mentioned and should be booked in advance. However, the cheapest car hire in France is at the Leclerc supermarket chain. Their car hire branch is called Leclerc Location. However, they are all around 5 to 20 minutes away from the various airports which could be costly in a taxi. An alternative might be to catch a train to Sarlat or Souillac.

If you fancy a few nights in Paris prior to a holiday at Les Granges, you could fly directly there then take a train from Paris to Souillac. Alternatively, you can travel via the Eurostar from St Pancras to Paris thereby doing almost the whole journey by train.
