Getting Here

Despite the peace and tranquility of Le Jardin du Berger we are located just 10km from the town of Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire and the N10. The N10 will take you south to Bordeaux and north to Angouleme. 

We are 1.5km from Challignac, which is 10 minutes drive from the Barbezieux exit of the N10. 


In Challignac, follow the sign for "Brie s/s Barbezieux" - there is actually a small tourist sign at this junction saying "Le Maine Neuf", which is our address. Take this road out into the countryside.

You will soon come to a small stade on the right hand side, immediately after a small vineyard.

Just after this, there is a distinctive row of tall Poplar trees, also on the right hand side.

Immediately afterwards, take the small turning on the left hand side, signposted "Le Maine Neuf"; head through the fields - there is a substantial track! When the sunflowers or other tall crops are out, though, it looks and feels as if you are driving through the field itself....

The track is short and takes you through a small oak woodland. As you emerge from the wood the road turns sharply to the right and straight ahead you can see Le Jardin du Berger, through the pale cream gates. There is parking immediately on the left hand side as you drive through the gates; please park here.
