Best airport for Bagnols-Sur-Ceze

Hi

We have hired a holiday cottage near Bagnols-Sur-Ceze for a week in June.

We cannot find any direct flights from London to Avignon (the nearest airport) and would prefer to to fly with Ryanair who fly to Nimes.

Are Marseille and Montpelier airports too far away to consider flying into? We shall be hiring a car at the airport but would prefer not to drive for a long distance

I don't understand your question : if you don't want to drive for a long distance and prefer Ryanair, why would you want to fly to Marseille or Montpellier?

Nimes to Bagnols is 42 km

Marseille to Bagnols is 114 km

Montpellier to Bagnols is 86 km

Sorry - I made a mistake in my question.

It should have said "Prefer NOT to fly with Ryanair"

British Airways fly to Marseille - how long would the 114km take to drive?

Or you could fly to Avignon from Southampton. Southampton Airport train station is one hour or so from London Waterloo by frequent direct trains, and the small terminal is a very short walk from the station.

Hi Perilizia - I did consider the Southampton option, however the flights were coming in at over £220 (once you add on extra £ for luggage) with Flybe, and then also the additional cost of the train from Waterloo to Southampton Airport Parkway.

I've now booked the British Airways flights to Marseille which were £116 (which i consider good value seeing as that includes all baggage and also inflight food and drink)

Look at Easyjet to Marseille from Gatwick, too.
