If you come from the direction of Bourganeuf / Pontarion, turn right immediately after passing the small church on the left side and the local shop on the right hand side (if coming from Aubusson, turn left before the church and shop). The road is the D34, signposted Vidaillat and Saint-Pierre-Bellevue. Continue on this road for about 4 km and you will arrive at Vidaillat.

Take the lefthand turn with a stone cross on the side of the road. Take this road and Chez Jallot is 250 meters to the right after the large stone wall.
