I would like to know where to fly to from USA, in order to go to Oradour sur Glane. Nearest airport, nearest city where I can rent a car. Nearest town to book a hotel.
This would be around mid June 2015.
Is it easier to fly form other countries in Europe to Oradour? I can always change my itinerary.
We drive, but there is a train station in Limoges and you could easily rent a car there. It's a very easy and pleasant drive on to Oradour-sur-Glane. There may be tours available from Limoges if you don't want to rent a car. You could check the Tourist Office web site. http://www.limoges-tourisme.com/ If you write to them in English, they will reply in English.
There is a bus from Limoges to Oradour. Transportation options and places to stay along with a lot of history are covered in the following informational web site. The practical information may help you. The historical information and photos are fascinating.
support that now reading again, airport, the closest one is at LImoges with some flights from London. You can hire a car or take advantage of their services http://kiwitaxi.com, they perform transportation from airport to hotel and vice versa
