How to get there
Airport: Lourdes, Pau, Biarritz, Bordeaux & Toulouse: 22.4 mi
Railway: Tarbes TGV 40mins: 24.9 mi
Ferry: St Malo, Caen, Calais, Santander (375km) and Bilba: 233.0 mi
There are excellent motorway links to the area from Biarritz, Bordeaux,Toulouse and Santander and Bilbao in Northern Spain. As Biarritz airport is just five minutes from the resort why not take to the opportunity to visit this fashionable chic resort with its incredible surfing and stunning beaches. The ferry ports of Santander and Bilbao are both about four hours drive to the Madiran area. The regional airports at Pau, Biarritz and Lourdes are relatively small compared with those in Bordeaux and Toulouse which makes travelling to or from them much more appealing.
