Just follow the car behind without thinking which way you are driving. Basically your seat is closer to center of the road and just remind yourself that when you turn go to right side, not left.

It's personal opinion. French drivers tend to speed but they drive smoothly when passing cars by using indicators well.

Driving within Lourds woudl be bit of nightmare as you see lots of worshippers walk on streets.

It's also nice to stop by some towns on the way to Lourds.

You had another post about taking the train. That's the easier and cheaper way to do it, something we are doing in three days. You can nap enroute and don't have to worry about driving on the side of the road you are unaccustomed to. Driving in Lourdes itself would be a nightmare as mentioned above and parking another nightmare. Take the train.
