Public transport

Is there public transport (train or bus) between Bordeaux and Carnac?

I wish to travel from Bordeaux to Carnac in October on the way back to Paris.

There are very few long-distance bus services in France, and I don't know of one on this route.

By train, the French train operator, SNCF, recommends that you take a TGV from Bordeaux to Paris, another TGV to Auray, then a railway-operated bus to Carnac. Total travel time would be around 8 hours.

I think a rental car would be best for this journey. But maybe someone else will have a better idea.

I have the same question. I wonder if there is a way to get to Carnac by train without having to go through Paris first?

You can go from Bordeaux to Nantes to Auray to Carnac. Still a long trip.
