Travel Information and Recommendations

There is no public transportation to Brissac. Visitors will need a car.  Our excellent pictorial driving directions to Brissac-le-Haut will be sent a few weeks before the start of your holiday, once you have decided your route.

  • By car, Brissac is approximately 11 hours from Calais, driving down the A6 or A75 autoroutes, then following our driving instructions for the last part of the journey.

  • By air, the nearest airport is Montpellier (MPL), but any other airport in the region will do as well: Nimes, Beziers, Perpignan, Carcasson and Avignon are all easier to begin your journey than navigating Montpellier’s nightmare roads, even with those pictorial driving instructions.

  • By train, for instance from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, again it is worth avoiding Montpellier by alighting at Nimes.  From London it is a pleasant day’s trip to take the Eurostar toward Paris, then change at Lille to the TGV for Perpignon which stops at Nimes and Montpellier. Or  in summer there is a direct train from London to Avignon, which is a two-hour drive from Brissac.

When choosing a flight or train, make sure that the local car hire office will still be open even if your flight or train is several hours late.
