Bus from Biarritz Airport to Le Ruisseau


Hope you can help.

We are travelling to Le Ruisseau in mid July 2014 for 4 nights. What bus do we get from Biarritz airport?

We then travel on to Le Vieux Port in Messanges. Now I know that it will be at least two or three buses up there (that's fine, we like the adventure!) but which ones shall we get?

And then we go on from Le Vieux Port to Sylvamar in Labenne.

Hope you can help :-)

For buses around Biarritz the bus company is http://www.chronoplus.eu From the airport to Le Ruisseau you first need to get Line C to Gare La Négresse. Change there for Line 12 towards Bidart.

Then to get to Le Vieux Port is going to be very tricky. First Line 12 from Le Ruisseau to Gare La Négresse (or all the way to Biarritz). From the station it is Line C until Bayonne Marie where the main bus station is. Once there the buses that go north into the Landes department are provided by: http://www.rdtl.fr

There is a bus that goes as far as Vieux Boucau which is about 2.5 km to the south of Vieux Port camping. Some more information about that here:


From Vieux Port to Labenne will be a reverse of the last journey. The bus only stops in Labenne itself, you will have to walk approximately 3 kilometres to Labenne-Océan where the Sylvamar campsite is located.

Very kind of you! Thanks, that is really helpful. It is going to be quite an adventure from Bidart to Messanges, a chance to practice my French language skills I think! Thanks again, Lisa
