Carpe diem, Marmeix, Champs Romain, 24470, France

About 7.5 - 8 hours drive with a couple of stops from Calais. Peage route = Calais - Rouen - Le Mans - Tours - Angouleme - Champs Romain (approx 500 miles). The tolls should be no more than 60 euros each way. Alternatively you can go the Paris route, which is perhaps quicker, if you don't get stuck on the peripherique, which is the equivalent to M25.


The closest airport to Champs Romain is Limoges Airport (47 km) in the surrounding area are Angouleme Airport (48km) Bergerac Airport (81km) or Poitiers Airport (123km ). Bordeaux airport is also approximately a two hour drive.

By train

TGV to Angouleme but would then need to hire car. Angouleme is approx 1 hour away.
