Travelling to and from Chabanais

8 Replies

Hi all, I am just in the process of buying a house in Chabanais and was under the impression that there was a railway line but have since found out that the train station shut in 2018 and there is only one bus a week from Limoges on a Saturday.  There doesn't seem to be any buses around the area.  Can anyone give further info?  I do drive but am thinking of visitors and not always wanted to hire a car as it will be a holiday home at first.

Unfortunately you don't have a train or bus option for Limoges to Chabanais.

Taxi or a lift from yourself or locals are your only option i'm afraid,  public transport is just not an option.

Do enjoy your move though.

Kind regards

Thanks for your response Glo!  That’s a shame.  Do you know if getting the train to Saillat and then a taxi is an option?

Take a look at Rome2Rio….transport network website. It will work out how to get from anywhere to anywhere….

Hi Barley Cat.  I was hoping that someone could give me an idea how easy it is to get a taxi from the train station closest to where I am trying to get to.

I believe the nearest Gare to you is Ruffec

The railway is scheduled to re-open but I've forgotten when. It's the Angoulême to Limoges line, both with good links to Paris although the Angoulême route is faster, being LGV. The Roumazières-Loubert (Terres-de-Haute-Charente) by-pass which is under construction includes a new expensive bridge to accommodate the line and recently I've noticed some track clearance taking place. This link shows a train, but it could be a bus
