Start checking the Internet for flights as early as January, for best fares. Compare fares into the following airports :
- Paris CDG
- Bordeaux BOD
- London HRT
- Madrid MAD
Getting to Bergerac
- From Paris CDG Airport: Take the TGV ( bullet train ) leaves from inside the airport to Bordeaux or Libourne.
- From Paris Montparnasse train station: Take the TGV to Bordeaux or Libourne.
- From Bordeaux or Libourne: Take the local train to Bergerac – Sarlat train stops in Bergerac.
NOTE: When you arrive in Bordeaux or Libourne you have to go through a tunnel under the tracks. If possible I suggest to get your ticket in Paris or here in the U.S. that way you can go directly to the track for your train……track is VOIE in French.
In all the stations there is a yellowish/ orange metal post by the door to the train, where you are supposed to ” validate” your ticket before getting on the train
From Bordeaux airport…..there is a shuttle to the train station….follow as above
From London :take a regular British Air from Heathrow to Paris or Bordeaux or Take Ryan Air or FlyB or any of the smaller airlines directly to Bergerac, from Stansted or Gatwick.
I will be in Bergerac to pick you up……remember to send me your arrival times !
