local taxi companies BASED in Cap d;agde  (3 Answers)

Hi all,
despite going to cap d'agde for holidays for many years, we have never had to use a taxi as we have always had the car.
Our next trip will have to be without the car as age has finally beaten us I'm afraid. How we will cope I just don't know but Cap d'Agde is too good to miss.
So I am hoping it will be possible to travel to where we want to travel by Taxi . For instance..... locally to the town, or to Beziers or a trip to Montpelier or to Agde ( I know there is a bus to Agde so that would not be too bad) .

What I need information about, is to know if there IS a local Taxi Company or taxi companies actually based IN Cap D'agde so that we would be able to call one locally ie quickly without having to call them in from Agde or further away than that.

any help on this would be really appreciated.

San Sebastian to Perpignan  (10 Answers)

hello again
I am trying to make a route plan, trying to squeeze in 10 days approx 3 cities that I want to see -Bilbao, San Sebastian and then, though it is France,or for others, Northern Catalunya, Perpignan. The cheapest way to fly for me is to Madrid and take a bus or train to Bilbao -and then leave from Barcelona that is very close to Perpignan. I cant seem to find a reasonable way (except for renting a car, that is out of the question for budget reasons) for the San Sebastian -Perpignan bit. I thought would be easy to get an overnight train and just sleep along but I cant find anything. Any help will be appreciated /thanx

2 weeks in south of France over winter - tips on itinerary, food, etc!  (3 Answers)

Hi, 2 of us will be flying into Lyon and plan to spend 2 weeks down south (over Xmas and NY). Since it will be winter, Provence/southeast France with its beaches may not seem to be such a good idea. So we have decided to go Languedoc/Bordeaux.

- any tips on where we must or should go? We definitely want to go Lourdes, and if time permits, to Bilbao/San Sebastian even. We are planning to travel by train.......
- any point in going for wine tours in Bordeauxover winter?
- any other must do, must eat, in the region? We are avid gourmets... :)

Thanks all!

Recommendation of Hotel or B&B in Toulouse  (9 Answers)

Having had incredible advice from members of this forum and the Dordogne forum, my wife and I now have our itinerary set for a September visit. We even have accommodations in Paris.

We need to find a place in Toulouse for only two nights. We want to find a moderately priced hotel or, better yet, a B&B, that isn't too far from the railway station. There are many websites and possible places to look but just in case any of you has a place you recommend, I'd love to have the recommendation.

Looking for B&B in the Vicinity of Carcassone  (5 Answers)

I know some of you saw my posting re Dordogne and we received many helpful responses. We are
expecting to spend a week in that region and also a week near Carcassone, preferably not far from the town and also preferably closer to Toulouse than to the East.We may also spend a few days in Toulouse.

Our ideal is a beautiful restored villa, with individual rooms that are quite private, and a common eating area in or outside. Lovely house, perfect rural setting, wonderful hosts, an easy 20 minute hike to town, and easy access to daily auto excursions in the region.

Any leads regarding places you know would be very welcome.

I am having a good time researching places (virtual travel!) but would welcome hearing about ones you know.

public transport  (2 Answers)

Hi, I'm planning a trip to stay in Boutenac - a tiny village near Carcassonne. Unfortunately none of our group will be quite old enough to hire a car so I was wondering what the bus and train systems are like? Are there frequent buses to various places or is everything by train (our nearest stop being Lezignan-Corbiers)... I really hope there is or we may have to change our plans.

Thank you.
