You can get to Les Chambons easily by car either from the N89 at Thenon or from the D704 from Limoges.

From the D704 take the sign post Sainte-Orse about 10 minutes past Saint Agnan (by Hautefort) and follow the signs for Sainte-Orse (10 minutes) once you arrive in Sainte-Orse centre (its tiny) you will come to a small crossroads (Hotel de France will be in front of you on the left and the Marie in front of you on the right). Turn right, down a hill and take the left hand turn at the bottom of the hill signposted Gabillou. Follow this road for 4Km - do not go to the left to Gabillou. Just past the Gabillou turning you will see a pretty stone cottage called Le Chambon, this is our neighbour. Les Chambons is the big house on the left just afterwards. Go past the side of the house and turn sharp left (slowly!) through the large iron gates into the courtyard. You may need to do this in a two point turn. 

From the N89 which goes through Thenon as if you are driving from Perigeux to Thenon, get to the main crossroads in Thenon and then turn left towards Sainte-Orse about 7km (you will go under the railway and motorway bridges and then see another sign to Sainte-Orse (6km) follow this to Sainte-Orse which is a small village. On the route you will also see signs to Gabillou - this is a more complicated route which we can explain to you once you have found us for the first time. Once in Sainte-Orse follow the signs for Gabillou (through the village, down a hill and then left to Gabillou. Follow this road D70 for about 4Km - do not go left up the hill to Gabillou. We are situated just past the tiny locality of Vaudres and below the actual village of Gabillou. Follow the directions as above.
