We have secure, covered parking for cars and motorcycles, and a well-equipped workshop for minor repairs. We are both keen bikers, having ridden for many years and regularly explore the region for the best roads and cafes!
We can recommend local restaurants and visitor attractions and know where to get fuel and food locally!
Please note that we cannot accept card payments, however, we do have Paypal - but cash is very acceptable!
We are located about 45 minutes north-west of the capital, Limoges, a region famed for exquisite porcelain china production, and also for beautiful leather glove manufacture (mostly supplied to the designer trade now but there is a factory shop locally, www.agnelle.com) plus a lot of history to explore - including the stories of Richard the Lionheart and the Black Prince, who were both Dukes of Aquitaine in the distance past.
The Val de Vienne race circuit is near us, check out this website:- http://en.circuitvaldevienne.com/ They have special biking days, including a Ducati special event.
We are about an hour from the TGV station at Angouleme which is on the Lille/Paris to Bordeaux line, linking with Eurostar in Lille. Limoges Airport is half an hour away with regular flights from Stansted, East Midlands and Southampton to name a few, but please note that you will need to hire a car when you are here as there are no buses! The autoroute road link to the A20 is less than hour’s drive away (30 miles). We are a couple of hours from Bordeaux and the coast with La Rochelle and Ile de Rey are about the same distance. For those who want to drive or ride from the UK, we can help advise you on the best routes to consider, including Channel crossings.
We are just 1.5kms north of the village of Bussiere Boffy (D62), and half-way between Bellac to the east and Confolens to the west (D951) and St. Junien to the south, all with excellent shopping facilities! Bussiere Boffy boasts a very early church with a leaning, twisted spire, a café/bar with a grocer’s store which also sells bread and pastries (grab a coffee there having bought your breakfast croissants first!) plus we have a very helpful post office. We are on the northern edge of the Perigord National Forest and there are some terrific roads for those who enjoy bend swinging! (And we might even join you!)
The local towns such as St. Junien, Bellac and Confolens have good shops, markets and restaurants, and we can recommend more local restaurants for lunches or evening meals.
We are here to help you have a fantastic stay, so just ask as many questions as you have!!
