The nearest airports are: Tarbes (Lourdes), Pau and Toulouse. Tarbes is the closest, then Pau, then Toulouse - from Toulouse the journey by car is around 1 hour and 40 minutes and from Tarbes around 1hour 15 minutes.
There are hire car options at all airports, but Toulouse has a much better choice of flights from the UK. [See below tips on finding the house by car.]
There is a tram/underground link from Toulouse airport as well as taxis at all the airports.
Train tickets can be bought all the way to Luchon. However, at present trains are replaced between Montrejeau and Luchon by a connecting coach service. There is no public transport between the train station in Luchon and the house, so to get there you can either hire a car from Luchon or catch a cab.
By ferry from the UK
There are many options for travelling to France by ferry. If you want to minimise your driving time, the ferries from Plymouth and Portsmouth to Santander and Bilbao are an option. Bilbao is the closest at about 3 and a half hours drive from the house.
Finding the house by road:
Regardless of how you travel to Luchon, you will need to find the house.
If you have a GPS:
- programme it to take you to 50 Plan de Lys, Cazeaux de Larboust. This will get you almost to the front door
- if this does not register with your GPS, try Bordes de Lys, Cazeaux de Larboust which will get you to almost the same place
DO NOT just put Cazeaux de Larboust into your GPS. This takes you to a different valley about 30 minutes drive away - a mistake made by many a delivery driver!
You are most likely to be arriving at the house from the Autoroute Pyrenéen (A64), the main motorway between Toulouse and the West coast. This is a tollroad, but you can pay by cash or card. Come off the motorway at Montrejeau (junction xx) and follow the signs to Bagnères de Luchon and Lerida (Spain).
Once you reach Luchon, cross the town and then follow the signs to Superbagnères and Vallée du Lys. This is the D125. Follow the D125 then turn right onto the D46 after Ravi (not the road to Hospice de France which goes straight on) continuing to follow the signs, and then at the next proper junction turn left into the Vallée du Lys (not the road to Superbagnères which goes straight on). Continue down the road for about 500m and Petaluma is the only house on the left hand side.
