Finding us

Bearfoot Lodge is in the heart of the Limousin region of France, in the small hamlet of La Pierre de Neuvic.  Approximately 40km east of Limoges, the capital, which has regular flights from the UK and daily train services from Paris, Lille and Toulouse. 

We highly recommend hiring a car to explore the beautiful surroundings. You can pick them up at the airport from Europcar or Enterprise, or even at the supermarket, Super U, in the neighbouring town of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt.
