  • By Air

    The nearest airports are Carcassonne (40 minutes drive to the house) and Beziers (one hour to the house), but both are small and served only by Ryanair from the UK. EasyJet flies to Montpellier (90 minutes to the house). The nearest large airport is Toulouse (around 2 hours), served by many major airlines including British Airways and Air France.

  • From Toulouse

    The journey from Toulouse to Ginestas is an easy motorway drive along the A61 motorway as far as Trebes or Lezignan Corbieres and tolls are only around €10 for the whole journey. From Trebes there is a direct road, the D610 to within 2 miles of Ginestas and clear signposting to Ginestas for the last stretch. Despite being a D road it is uncrowded and fast other than through a couple of villages on the way. The Lezignan Corbieres turnoff is nearer Ginestas, but then it is necessary to drive for around 8 miles on fairly small country roads.

  • Rail

    The nearest mainline railway station is Narbonne, around 20 minutes’ drive away, with mainline services from across France.

  • From UK by Car

    If you are travelling from the UK by car, Brittany Ferries operate to St Malo and Caen either during the day or with the chance to sleep overnight, Starting from these ports saves at least three hours and avoids the hassle of the Paris Peripherique. After allowing for fuel and tolls it isn’t a great deal more expensive than crossing at Calais or Boulogne. If you want to travel with your car, but without the 8-9 hour drive through France, there is a sleeper train all the way from Calais to Narbonne which takes your car on the back. But it is very expensive.
