Located in the Loire Valley, 2km from the small town of Descartes which is midway between Tours and Poitiers, Le Bouchet is only 20 minutes from the A10 junction at St Maure de Touraine.

If you are coming by road there are various options:

For those who want a short channel crossing there is of course Eurotunnel and the ferry services to Calais and Boulogne. From the Calais/Boulogne ferry terminals there are two suggested routes to Le Bouchet both taking about six hours - one route for the brave hearted (and admirers of traffic jams) via Paris and the A10 - and the other route via Rouen and Le Mans using the new A28 link joining the A10 just after it has passed over the River Loire at Tours.

For shorter driving times in France there are the ferry terminals at Caen (3 hours), St. Malo (3.5 hours), Le Havre (4 hours) and you can get a 20% discount on your ferry booking with Brittany Ferries.

Whichever route you choose, just click on the buttons on the left for more information.
Full driving directions to Le Bouchet, including route planning that you can print out, can be obtained from the Google maps button.
