Leave this road at Montmoreau St Cybard onto the D709 towards St Severin, turning right onto the D78 at Montignac-le-Coq. The Gite is exactly 1.6 miles south of Montignac, on the D78, on the right hand side heading towards Aubeterre.

Driving from the south of France head for the towns of Bergerac, then Riberac. In Riberac take the D708 towards Vertillac (in a northerly direction) and at the first roundabout you come to after crossing the river Dronne, turn left onto the D709 to St Severin.

From St Severin, turn right at the end of the main high street (after passing the Post Office on your right and where the Tabac is on your left) onto the D17 signposted to Palluaud.

* In 200 yards turn left following the signs for Pillac. After about a mile take the right turn to Pillac. In 1.5 miles turn left at the T junction, again signposted to Pillac. Cross the little river Auzonne and carry straight on, ignoring the sign for Pillac on the right, and you’ll be at Ginny’s Gite in 300 yards on the right hand side.

Stop over en-route if you want to break your journey part way through France, a place to stay, that several guests have used and been very happy with, is a Logis called Hotel de France at La Chartre-sur-le-Loir.  It’s around half way between Le Mans and Tours.  It’s a well-equipped, small family-run hotel representing good value for money and has a pool and an excellent restaurant.
