Route du Chevalier
From the North
If using the A10
toll road (or the non toll dual carriageway) from Tours, exit at Poitiers
and take the RN10 towards Angouleme. At Angouleme take the RN141 signed
to Jarnac and Cognac, or continue on the RN10 and follow directions
below as from the South.
From RN10 EastContinue past Angouleme and then take the exit signed to Barbezieux, about 15 - 20 kilometres.
This has a long straight road towards the town centre. At the end of this long straight take a right at the roundabout. This will be signed to Bordeaux. (There is a large Boulangerie on the opposite corner).
At the next roundabout take the right signed to Segonzac.
Continue on this road for about 12 kilometres until you pass a speed restriction sign (70) at a small hamlet called Champagnoux.
After the speed restriction ends take the first left (about 200 metres) signed to Ambleville, the sign facing away from you.
After about 50 metres continue straight on, do not bear left. This is Route du Chevalier and we are the first house on the left, about 50 metres.

dual carriagway from Bordeaux, but at the end has a section of about
10 kilometres of single carriageway. When the dual carriageway starts
again take the first exit towards Barbezieux. This is a long straight
