Bergerac was 'fogged in', this was our alternate. Big field but very quite. Twr spoke English and was very helpful. Landing fee less than 4 Euros. Friendly aero club made a coffee for us!
Rented acft from Sue Virr from the Aero club de Limoges. http://www.nearlyheaven.com/.
Friendly field, very helpful tower, only the odd delay to account for inbound IFR traffic (Ryanair etc) otherwise a great base for touring.
Small field on UNICOM 123.50 so French calls here the norm (although we made ours in English). Landing fees are a 'donation' into the piggy bank in the flying club reception. Great little restaurant round the corner (20m) L'Escale Guillaumet.
Great location, easy nav and comms, arrived from the North (Limoges) and bought in via the published VRPs.
Landing fees less than 4 Euros!! I'm moving to France. Easy access to the apron via the Aeroclub de Bergerac so no faffing with security etc. Good cafe/restaurant, coffee good.
Fabulous place, fabulous people. Hats off to Trevor, Mim and Edwina for a truly memorable stay at the William Creek Hotel. Couldn't have asked for more.
