Hi all we are doing a 2 month trip and I have found all the transportation, but this last little segment;
these are the 3 options I can figure: they all kind of suck, I feel like I am missing a obvious choice;
- Option one-Get to Caen fly to Bordeau, Air france leave at 635, arrive at 0940, rent a car in Bordeaux, $99 each 3.5 hours, layover in Lyon or Airfrance, flight 1671@ 930 arrive at 1035. out of Orly airport $55 /pp flight takes 65 minutes. and drive to Sarlat. 2.5 hours Need to get to paris- 4 hour by train Need to set up flight-3 hours Need to rent a car. -2.5 hours faster just to renta car and drive, I don't think plane is a good option.
Option two- renta car in Bayeux and drive to Sarlat
418 miles takes 6 hours and 33 min. - shortest option
Option three-or train Bayeux to Bordeaux saint - jean, via Paris Gare, transfer 55 min,
then transfer to SNCF/TGV INOUI 8403
arrived at 6pm, total time is 5 hours 16 min.
but may be on stike. big concern
then rent a car and drive to Sarlat 2.5 hours, total is 8 hours.
that's just getting to Sarlat.
Then need to get to Pamploma, looks like driving is our shortest option. Then 300 miles to pamploma, but the rental car from Bayeux to Pamploma is $200 / night , for 6 nights, that's crazy expensive. Any ideas: ?? Thanks, Karen
