How do I get to the Château?
It is very easy to get to the Château - by plane, train or automobile. Click here for details.


Should I hire a car?

Probably. Most of the great things to see and do close to Château Les Carrasses require a car to get to. The nearest village is within walking distance – about 1.5k – and it is possible to use Taxis and public transport to get around, but be prepared for waits and walking.


On the other hand, if you are coming for a short stay, and your plan is to stay put at the Château, then you might not need a car. The Chateau has a dedicated client courtesy car, and we can arrange a pick up/drop off at the airport. Just let us know when making your reservation, or if you have already done so, by clicking here.
