From Calais either
Take the A16 to Paris, then the A10 towards Orleans; this becomes the A71 to Vierzon. At Vierzon take the A20 towards Limoges
OR (to avoid Paris)
Take the A16 to Abbeville, then turn off onto the A28 to Rouen; from there head for Evreux, Dreux, Chartres, Orleans, Vierzon and the A20 which by-passes Chateauroux and heads for Limoges. Now see below "EXIT the A20"

From Le Havre, take the A13 towards Paris, turning right onto the A28 towards Le Mans

From Cherbourg and Ouistreham (Caen) head for Caen, from the ring-road taking Sortie 13 (N158) to Alencon, joining the A28 towards Le Mans.

From Le Mans follow signs to Tours, and then take the N143 towards Chateauroux, joining the A20 southbound towards Limoges.

EXIT the A20 at sortie 28, turning right and following signs for Perigueux. After leaving the motorway roundabout, keep going straight on at every roundabout until you reach one where there is no option to go straight on. Here you turn right onto the N21 SP Perigueux and Chalûs. From here there are two options:

Simple route: Continue to Chalûs, where turn R at the second set of traffic lights SP Rochechouart D901. After 9km there is a camping sign – take the next left SP Champagnac la Riviere D75a, and Parc Verger is 200m on your left.

Alternative route
(shorter but more bends/hills): After passing through the next village, Sereilhac, continue for a further 5km when you turn right onto the D699 SP Gorre. Passing through the village stay on the D699 through a sharp left turn, and continue to the junction with the D901, where turn left towards Chalûs. After 1 km turn right SP Champagnac la Riviere D75a, and Parc Verger is 200m on your left. NOTE that there is a turn to Champagnac La Riviere from the D699 shortly before the junction with the D901, but this is narrow and not recommended for large vehicles nor those towing.

From Roscoff or St Malo, follow the signs for Rennes, then N137 to Nantes, and A83 to Niort, by-passing the town and joining the A10 south towards Bordeaux. Exit at the first sortie (32) and take the d948 towards Melle and Limoges. Continue on the D948 through Sauze Vaussais – a good place to buy diesel is the Super-U on your right as you leave the town. The road shortly becomes the D148, and then regains its D948 number as it approaches Confolens. 14km after Confolens turn right to Chabanais on the D29; at the main road turn right into the village centre, where turn left SP Rochechouart (still D29). Stay on this road to Rochechouart, from where take the D901 towards Chalus. In Oradour sur Vayres stay on the D901 DO NOT turn towards Champagnac-La-Rivière where it is signposted. 4.5km after going through Oradour-sur-Vayres turn right off of the D901 onto D75a SP Champagnac La Riviere, and Parc Verger is 200m on your left.


From Bordeaux

Take the A89 to Perigueux, then the N21 north to Chalus. Passing through the first set of traffic lights, you will see a little further on 2 sets of lights closely linked. The first covers a left turn into the village centre, whilst the 2nd is a crossroads where you should turn left onto the D901 towards Champsac and Rochechouart; after 9km turn left SP Champagnac la Riviere D75a , and Parc Verger is 200 m on the left.


From Toulouse

Take the A20 north towards Limoges. Leave the A20 at Brive, and take the A89 autoroute west (SP Perigueux & Bordeaux), leaving at sortie 16 for Perigueux. Continue towards Perigueux; but before reaching the city take the N21 north SP Limoges.

Continue on the N21 north to Chalus. At the crossroads (3rd set of t-lights, but CARE – the third set is immediately after the second!) turn left towards Champsac and Rochechouarrt; after 9km (500m after campsite sign) turn left SP Champagnac la Riviere D75a, and Parc Verger is 200m on the left.

Alternative route (good, but slightly narrower road than the N21): Continue on the A 20 to J40 at Pierre Buffiere. Cross the autoroute and at the T junction turn R, and in the centre of the village turn L onto the D15 SP Nexon. Continue on the D15 to Nexon, Les Cars and Chalus where at traffic lights turn L onto the N21. After 200m at next traffic lights turn R onto D901 towards Champsac and Rochechouart; after 9km (500m after campsite sign) turn left SP Champagnac la Riviere D75a, and Parc Verger is 200m on the left. NOTE that Nexon's market day is Thursday and if travelling that day you should take the heavy vehicle by-pass that is on the R as you get to the town. At the T junction turn Ltowards the centre, but after 300m turn R rejoining the D15 towards Les Cars and Chalus.


From Lyon follow signs for Clermont-Ferrand, from where follow the A89 to join the A20 northbound (SP Limoges); then follow directions from Toulouse above.
