We asked the owners of La Junnel to give us some details of property and this is what they sent.
Our beautiful 4-person gite is at the bottom edge of the Dordogne / Lot et Garonne border and is surrounded by history from the prehistoric caves to the modern buildings of the 21st century. There are beautiful bastide villages and churches ranging from the 12th to 15th century and of cause a lot of chateaux. We also have the beautiful Dordogne river with plenty of boats and canoes you can hire. Oh, and did I tell you we are also in the middle of the best vineyards in France, Bordeaux, St Emilion, Duras which makes the famous white Sauvignon and Bergerac wines including Monbazillac wines.
After numerous trips to and from Yorkshire we have found our preferred route that tend to avoid the toll roads and stick to the free “A” Roads and fast “D” roads. It is cheaper, not that much slower, and you also get to see more of France that way.
Our main route is from the Tunnel and takes the D928 to the A28 to Rouen. The N10 and N21 are great roads and via Orleans and Limoges provide a stress free and pleasant drive. We do not get rush hour traffic here, maybe an odd tractor here and there and the roads are well maintained.
