Couleyrie is a hamlet of Pontours. There are no street names, so usually your GPS will tell you at the street sign of Couleyrie that you have ‘found your destination’. That sign is right in front of the house, you only have to turn into the driveway with the sign ‘La Maison Louverie’ to park your car in the garage. Beyond that building is another garage and behind the big barn is space for many more cars, camper vans and SUVs.
From Bergerac and Periqueux (N21) there are signs to Lalinde, follow those and cross the Roman bridge to the south. (You have the Dordogne river on your left) You drive through Pontours and about 1km after Pontours (you have a orchard with a little boathouse on your left) you turn right at the sign for Couleyrie. Follow that road for less than 3 km and you will find yourself at the ‘centre’ of Couleyrie. La Maison Louverie is to the right. Identifiable by the extensive work done by our permanent resident ‘Mr. Mole’.
If you come from the direction Sarlat-de-Caneda or Periqueux (through Le Bugue)then go south and cross the river Dordogne at Le Buisson-de-Cadouin. After crossing the river you go right (direction west D28/29) and follow the signs to Cales and/or Badefols-sur-Dordogne. After you crossed Badefols and after about 0,5 km, you turn left at the sign to Couleyrie. On your right you have the orchard and the boathouse. Follow that road for less then 3 km and you enter the ‘centre’ of the hamlet on top of the hill. La Maison Louverie is to your right.
