Our holiday property is located in the hamlet of Eguilly, which is around 1.5km from Couches in the beautiful department of Soane-et-Loire. Using the superb uncongested auto routes, it’s around a 6 hour drive from Calais or around 120km from Lyon airport.
For English visitors using the tunnel and reaching Calais at around 9.00 am usually means arriving at the property around 4.00pm allowing for breaks along the route.
