By car: Leave the A8 in Saint-Maximin (exit #34) and immediately after the toll station turn right to Bras (when arriving on N7, head for the town center and follow the country road D28 to Bras). In Bras drive on to the center (until Café "Le Nemrod"), and after 200 ft. turn left at the plane trees into Emile Combes lane. Then follow the blue "Bastide des Templiers" signs for another mile up to the hilltop.
