Driving Directions

From the A10  motorway,  St. Jean d’Angely exit no. 34, you follow signs to Rochefort, this involves exiting the motorway (assuming you are coming from the north) then recrossing it on the flyover and taking a left turn after about 500 metres.

Through the village of La Vergne then up a long hill about 3.5 km from that turning, there are two left turns at the top, you need the second one signposted Torxe.

One minute down that road and on the right you will see some big iron gates painted white, that is the main entrance to the chateau, The gite is round to the left
