Bordeaux Airport is 35min and 42km from Vinegites.
Bergerac Airport is 1h 30 and 90km.
British airways, easyjet, Flybe and Ryanair fly daily from many airports in the UK through the Summer months, and continue to fly from a limited number of airports through the winter.
If you decide to fly then it will be essential to hire a car from the airport as the property is rural and public transport is limited. All the major car hire firms operate from Bordeaux and Bergerac airport.
If you decide to drive from England then Brittany Ferries and LD lines operate from Dover, Portsmouth, Newhaven, Poole, Weymouth or Plymouth.
