Getting to us

How to Get to Higher Pastures

Travelling from the UK by Air
The nearest airport to us is Tarbes/Lourdes Airport. Situated 9kms South South West of Tarbes and is around 35 minutes drive from us with hire cars available from the airport. Ryanair operates a twice weekly flight from London Stansted all year round putting on extra flights during peak times as well as special charters for Pilgrims. If leaving London Stansted on a Saturday morning flight you can be with us for lunch on the terrace with a glass of chilled local crisp white wine whilst the children splash in the pool!

If you would like take advantage of our collection service from the airport just let us know in advance of your arrival. This is a complimentary service.

The next nearest airport is Pau, which is about 1-hour drive. Ryanair operates here.  Again, if you require collection just give us as much notice as possible.

Another airport we often use is Toulouse. Easy jet and Ryanair operate daily flights.  The drive from Toulouse airport takes around 1hour and 45 minutes by car and is an easy drive with breathtaking views as you drive into the mountains. Again we can collect you if you let us know in advance and there will be a small charge to cover fuel costs for this journey.

Also worth a look is Biarritz.  Just a different direction and a really easy drive to us. Ryanair, Flybe and Easy jet operate from here.

Finally, Bordeaux is 4 hours drive but well served by BA,  Flybe, Ryan Air and Easyjet.

Travelling by Train
Hop on the Eurostar from London to Lourdes. Let the train take the strain and enjoy the ride! Great offers available if you can book 3 months in advance. Just 20 drive from Lourdes, let us collect you and your family. Stress-free travel.
Ferry Crossings
If you want the convenience of driving your own car, try Brittany Ferries crossing from Portsmouth or Plymouth to Bilbao or Santander in Spain and enjoy the ‘mini cruise’ experience which can be as quick as 24 hours. Hop off refreshed and relaxed and enjoy a lovely 3-hour drive around the Pyrenees to us.

There are endless crossings from the south coast of England to Northern France. Check out Brittany Ferries, Euro Tunnel, P and O Ferries, DFDS Seaways to mention a few. A good comparison site to check out is direct ferries.
