Travel to Montsalvy, France

Whilst the remoteness of Montsalvy adds to its charm, it does also add on a couple of hours in travel time to actually get there! Perhaps the nearest airport is at Bordeaux (BOD), where flights from British Airways arrive from London Gatwick (LGW). Toulouse and even Marseilles also have airports which could be used. Whichever one you choose, you will certainly benefit from having a hire care in order to get from the airport to your self catering accommodation in Montsalvy, and also to explore the region in general. If you decide instead to drive, keep in mind that the ferry ports are at least an 8 hours’ drive away.

Lots of nearby water sports on the river. We visited nearby Conques a gorgeous little town/village which is said to be similar to village in the Beauty and the Beast story, it really was and was such an easy route to get to, took around 30 mins. We also visited Estaing, another lovely town worth a visit, again not far. Entra Sur Truyere itself is lovely, we ate at a pizza restaurant on the Wednesday where they had live music and we sat next to the river, our boys were able to cross the bridge and we could see them play in the park opposite. Local bakery and butchers very nice. Wendy the owner is a wonderful Home and Away lettings property host/owner and very informative. Contact was also really good. We would recommend.

Gite is tastefully furnished, surprisingly spacious, swimming pool much enjoyed. Garden has stunning views to eat your meals in. We explored the surrounding area, picturesque villages, and Conques was exceptionally interesting and atmospheric. We hope to come again.
