Getting Here

By Plane

The nearest airport is St Etienne which is 40 minutes away which has regular flights from Paris. Lyon airport is an hour and a half away, with Easyjet flights from London (Stansted and Heathrow) as well as BA and Air France.
From the airport there is the option of car hire or a bus/tram to Lyon Part Dieu railway station, with hourly connections from there to St Etienne Chateaucreux and Retournac (10 minutes from the chateau)

By Car

From Calais

We are 8-9 hours drive from Calais

We recommend you taking the motorway via Reims and Troyes to avoid Paris congestion.

When passing through north Lyon take the signs to Marseille until you see St Etienne signposted. Then follow the advice below from St Etienne.

Coming from Lyon airport by car

Out of the airport take the first signposts to Grenoble/Chambery until you see Marseille signposted and the peage.

Go through the peage (credit cards accepted if you have no 1.70 euros change) and now follow the signs to St Etienne.

From St Etienne follow the signs to Le Puy en Velay. Turn off on the road marked Bas en Basset/retournac. Follow this until you are nearly at Retournac, a couple of minutes after a village called Jussac there is a right hand turning marked Craponne, take this and follow for about 5 minutes, there is crossroads after a hamlet called La Baraque, turn right here for St Andre de Chalencon.

As you come up the hill from the Laberte river towards St Andre, there is a left hand turning marked STADE, take this, and at the T junction which immediately follows take a left. You are now entering Chazelles and you will see the large wall of the annex ahead on your left. The green iron entrance gates are just after this building on the left. If they are closed ring the bell on the left by the gates and we will open them for you.

If you have a GPS we recommend entering St Andre de Chalencon and not Chazelles, as there are several in France.

Coming via Le Puy there is a lovely route along the Loire river. Then turn off after Vorey to the left towards Roche en Regnier. From Roche just follow the road straight, straight across at the Cross roads to St Andre de Chalencon and then before St Andre turn off left to Chazelles.

By Train

We recommend changing at Lille and not Paris to avoid having to trek through Paris. There is an easy change at Lyon Part Dieu to St Etienne, and trains from St Etienne to Retournac where we can pick up. The train journey from St Etienne to Retournac has some very pretty stretches along the upper loire valley, running alongside the Loire river.
