To find us enter Bures 61170 or Bures ORNE in the SAT NAV
On arrival in the village there are no road names but will bring you to the centre next to the church - and our entry gates are just 5 metres across the road from the church.
If you are travelling on the A28 from Calais or A88/A28 from Caen Falaise take the Sees exit. There is a new Sees bypass which will take you to the roundabout next to Auno sur Orne on the Mortagne road. DO NOT exit at the Gace junction which many GPS will try to make you do - it isnt easier believe us!
If you arrive at Beauvais Airport come via Rouen and A28 or it will take you to Paris and then to us (it calculates it to be 2 minutes faster but don't believe it)
