Travel from London to Gers (Condom or Fleurance)

We are planning a short break end of May in the Gers Region. Haven't decided yet exactly where, Any recommendations welcome - we want to cycle, hike and taste Armagnac.

Most important question though, how to get there? Fly to Carcassonne? NImes? Any nearer airports? Take the Eurostar and TGV?

I would be very grateful for practical advise.

Thanks a lot in advance and best regards from London, Kerstin

You will be struggling if you don't hire a car at some point. Condom has just four buses a day (weekdays and Saturdays) to and from Agen, just one on Sundays. Agen is a short train ride from Toulouse.

You can fly to Toulouse, or take Eurostar to Paris then a TGV via Bordeaux to Agen. The latter will take all day. You really are leaving it late to get decent (cheap) prices on plane or train.

Eurostar can sell you one ticket all the way from London to Agen - see www.eurostar.com

For links to bus times Agen <> Condom see this recent TA post

Carcassonne is a long way from the Gers and Nimes is hours and hours away. Bordeaux would be an alternative airport to look at as there are plenty of trains from there to Agen, taking about an hour.

Sorry I didn't complete my answer. The other place, Fleurance, has a better bus service.

These connect with trains from Toulouse at Auch and also run to and from Agen to connect with trains there.

These buses replace another closed down railway line.
