Marseille is the nearest airport and is also well served daily by EasyJets inexpensive and frequent flights. Marseille arrivals should take the rapid 1½ hour bus or train service via Aix en Provence to Sisteron from where we provide a FREE pickup. Alternatively if you arrive at Nice, you should take the narrow gauge Chemin de fer de Provence train to Digne (about 3 h) where we can collect, but this is charged at 50 Euros bookable/payable 2 weeks in advance.

By Road

It couldn't be simpler - by car we're about a 9 hour drive from the main channel ports. You can drive on motorways avoiding Paris to Lyon then follow the motorway on to Grenoble. From Grenoble the N75 will take you to Sisteron from where La Motte du Caire is well signposted (D951). For visitors from Scotland, the new Superfast ferry from Rosyth in Scotland to Zeebrugge is a great option giving only 10 hours driving on the French side.
