The nearest airport is Carcassonne, 40 minutes from the village; Ryanair flies here from London Stansted and several other UK and European airports. Other airports within two hours' drive include Perpignan, Beziers and Toulouse, which is 90 minutes away, and is served daily by 2-3 British Airways flights to Heathrow.

We’re half an hour from the A61, the autoroute linking the Mediterranean with Toulouse and destinations further north. Driving time from the UK is at least 14 hours, feasible of course with an overnight stop.

Carcassonne can be reached by train from Paris (6-7 hours) and has good TGV links with Montpellier, Toulouse and Bordeaux among other cities; but a car is essential to reach the village, shops and sites in the area.
