Travelling to Argeles-sur-mer from Asia

We are flying in from Hong Kong to Paris-CDG and the connecting flight to Perpignan is via Paris-Orly. To avoid having to retrieve all baggage at CDG, take the shuttle bus and rechecking in at Paris-Orly, we are contemplating of flying from Paris-CDG either to Toulouse or Montpellier and then drive over to Argeles-sur-mer.

Questions:-

1) Does anyone have any experience of doing the CDG-Orly route. How long and cumbersome will the whole process be?

2) If we do decide to skip Orly-Perpignan, should we fly in to Toulouse or Montpellier. Montpellier-Argeles sur-mer seems to be a shorter route on google maps but can anyone advise on the condition of the roads.

I am travelling with 2 young toddlers and option (1) does not seem very appealing.

Thanks for your help!

I would take a taxi from CDG to ORY and give yourself plenty of time. If you are using separate airline tickets, allow at least 4 hours ground time.

If you are renting a car, the Autoroute is available to Argeles from either Toulouse or Montpellier but travelling from Perpignan would be a lot easier.

Why not take the train from CDG to Perpignan ? There are direct trains from the airport station. But it depends on your arrival of course - there are only a couple of direct per day.

Road conditions are excellent highway standard and there are tolls to pay.
