you are heading to us from the North, then you can come off the
A10 Autoroute (motorway) at exit 35 (Saintes) and you are then 25
minutes away. This is slightly quicker and cheaper (toll) than continuing
to exit 36. However, you can continue to exit 36 (Pons) where you
will find a Leclerc supermarket, should you wish to buy some food
before you arrive.
From the South, you should come off
the A10 at exit 36 (Pons) and you are then 10 minutes away. From
here you will pass the Leclerc supermarket at Pons should you want
to do a quick shop.
