We live in rural France - local public transport is extremely limited and consequently we advise that a car is ESSENTIAL. You can book your car hire in advance from the airports and train stations – we recommend family run Buggs Car Hire at Bergerac or Limoges Airports, or try Avis, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz etc. from other locations.
