See below for more information & links.

Villa Magnieu

32 Rue de la Liberté

24400 Saint Médard de Mussidan


Directions: From the centre of Mussidan head west (towards Bordeaux) directly through Mussidan town centre. Go over the railway level crossing & straight over the mini roundabout (local supermarkets are off to the right at this mini roundabout). Carry straight on for about 500m and Villa Magnieu is on the right. The entrance is on the D709E1 which passes through the centre of Mussidan. If you reach a larger roundabout with small pine trees in the centre you have passed the entrance about 100m before. 

If travelling by car from the west (from Bordeaux or Montpon for example) take the D6089 towards Mussidan. When reaching the roundabout with small pine trees in the centre (1 Km to the west of Mussidan town centre) head straight over (3rd exit). You will see the villa entrance on your left after 100m, if you pass any roads or other houses you have gone too far.
