The protected medieval village of Ségur-le-Château is located at the gateway to southwest France adjacent to the Périgord Vert. Positioned on the border of the regions of the Limousin and the Aquitaine, the village lies at the intersection of the Departments of the Dordogne, the Correze and the Haute-Vienne. Close to two cities with air and rail connections to both Europe and Great Britain, Ségur is less than an hour south of Limoges and north of Brive-la-Gaillarde. The center of Paris is 4 hours north by automobile and 2.5 hours by train. It is an easy trip south along the A-20 motorway to destinations such as Cahors, Toulouse and Carcassonne and on to the Mediterranean. There is quick access to the new east-west motorway, the A-89, which extends between Bordeaux (and its surrounding vineyards and access to the Atlantic coast) and Lyon, France's second largest city.
