Font Remy is about 4 hours' drive from St Malo, 5 hours from Le Havre or 7 hours from Calais. The motorway which brings you into Charente Maritime is the A10.
The best route from Calais is via Boulogne, Rouen, Le Mans and Tours - simply follow the signs and you can’t go wrong. It's motorway all the way (apart from going around Rouen) and brand new roads make the drive a pleasure and quicker than the route via Paris.

Directions to Font Remy
From North (A10): Take exit 36 off the A10 (signed Pons) and follow road to Gemozac (D732). Mortagne-sur-Gironde is signposted at Gemozac (D6). This leads you to Boutenac Touvent where you will come to a roundabout. Go straight on and up a gently rising hill out of Boutenac.
At the top of the hill you will see a moulin (mill) on your left. Take a right turn just before the mill onto the D245 (signposted Chenac and Epargnes). Font Remy is the first building on the left. Ignore the first driveway and take the second.
From South (A10): Take exit 37 off the A10, which is signposted Mirambeau. Take the D730 signposted Royan - it's a left turn at the T junction after the toll booth. Follow the road until you reach the roundabout at Boutenac Touvent and turn left. Directions are then as above.
