Best way to get to Perigeux/Montignac, Dordogne

Jump to last reply

We will be travelling from Dubai to Montignac on Fri, 2 May next year and am having trouble weighing up the various options.

Having only ever travelled by car in Europe, I am a complete novice when it comes to train travel which is adding to my confusion. I am assuming that if I can get us to Perigeux our friends who we are meeting up with will be able to collect us from there as they will have a car, so at least we do not need to get to Montignac itself.

It seems to me we could fly into Paris and then catch a plane down to one of the regional airports but we would still then need to catch a train and it seems very messy and expensive. (Very few flights go direct into Perigeux and they seem to be very small planes which my hubby is not a fan of.) We could fly into Paris and then train down to the south of France and, if so, what would you suggest would be the best routing.

At the present time, I am thinking the best option is to fly direct from Dubai to Lyon on Emrirates and then we could catch a train from Lyon to Perigueux. We've never stayed in Lyon so would consider spending a night there if you think that is a good idea and, might even be necessary, depending on timetabling.

Incidentally, we have no wish to spend time in Paris on this trip at all, so if we went the Paris route it would defintely be straight in and out.

Your suggestions on the best websites to use to book trains would also not go amiss.
