Last train from Pau to Lourdes

by alohame

Hi,
I will be travelling on the 11th of June to Lourdes and will be arriving in Pau by Transavia at 21.00 hrs.Is it too late for us to catch a train to Lourdes from Pau train station? Where can I find a train schedule for trains from Pau to Lourdes and return?
Thanks

You can find the train times on http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml
German railways appear to have a better search engine than French Railways. I defy any novice to look at http://www.sncf.com/en_EN/flash/ and understand what it is all about. Idiotic.

You could try looking at the SNCF website here:

http://www.voyages-sncf.com/billet-train?rfrr=Homepage_header_TRAIN

which is a little easier to use, although only in French.

Bahn.de is by far the easiest site to find all European train times and details. You only need to try SNCF (or anyone else) if you want fares as well.

It is a short journey (30 minutes or so). Last train on weekdays is at 22.20 so you might just catch it, if you get out of the airport quickly.

I think the TGV from Paris calls into Pau just after 11pm but I guess you may need to book a seat on it. Not sure about that because whilst it may be chocker with pilgrims I would think by the time it reaches Pau there will be space.
I still don't understand French Railways.
You can get a ticket using http://www.tgv.co.uk/ in advance. It only costs a few pounds.

Travel Tips for Pau

Mit’Jet series and Peugeot spider

by kokoryko

Grand prix de Pau, Mit’Jet series and Peugeot spider
Other cars race during the week end in Pau. The Mit’Jet are rather small and spectacular cars, interesting to watch, expecting a crash(which luckily did not happen), and the spiders are strange unusual cars. Just a few pictures.


main picture The Peugeot spiders at the upper end of the “palmeraie” (Palm tree grove).
picture 2:Mit’Jet on the Poeymirau descent just after Parc Beaumont.
picture 3: Mit’Jet on the Poeymirau descent just after Parc Beaumont.
picture 4: In the parc Beaumont; in the background is the Hotel du Parc Beaumont; there are night races, the residents must be happy. . . eh, yes, because almost all hotels are occupied by people coming for the races. . . . .
picture 5: Did these two walking between the stands come because of their interest for mechanics and the cars or for the drivers. . . .?

Entrance fees: from 10 to 50 Euro per day, depending where and when.

Luz Ardiden ski resort: a small one

by kokoryko

This is a small ski resort above Luz St Sauveur; like the Tourmalet, it is well known by cyclists who follow the tortures of the Tour de France riders. Ski is good here, when there is enough snow, tracks are easy and fast.
There is no accommodation at this resort and if you want to stay for a few days, you may go to Luz St Sauveur or in the small villages around. (Tips are coming about the Pays de Toy, small villages community around here).
main picture You may have the tracks for you alone in Luz Ardiden
picture 2:One person on the track; not very much snow at the time (feb. 2007)
picture 3:Down there is the station; it is very pleasant to ski with almost nobody on the tracks.
picture 4: Departure of lifts
picture 5: No accommodation here, but at least you can have a snack or a drink. Luz Ardiden is a very small resort.

Inside the Parc Beaumont and Past the Casino

by hquittner

A walk in the Parc Beaumont was a fine place to start a Sunday morning. Here the most attractive sight is the bevy of swans. We then headed to the Musee-Beaux-Art but first saw the late 19C Casino which seems to never close. The last sight to visit will be the Chateau.

Monument aux Combattants

by mikey_e

Like all French cities and, indeed, many cities in countries whose forces participated in the fighting during the two World Wars, Pau has a monument dedicated to the memory of those who served their nation in 1914-1918 and 1939-1945. Pau's memorial is remarkable for two reasons. The first is that it is in the form of a woman defender and not an arch, unlike so many monuments dedicated to the fallen in France. The second is that the statue, at its base, has two small plaques commemorating Spanish Republicans and Portuguese exiles who participated in the Liberation of France and the defeat of Fascism outside of their own countries. In a way, it is a small reminder of the important role that these exiles played, not only in the Second World War but also in the general development of the south of France and modern French history.

Lucq de Bearn is also a very nice village.

by kokoryko

Coming from north with my bike I entered the village on this street (main picture), which was very quiet on this Sunday afternoon. The houses on the street are typical with the bearnese mansards on the roofs, the pebble walls and the porches; unusual are the painted walls in Bearn, but in this village it is common. On the second picture, is a wonderful bearnese house, with a long balcony located at the beginning of the village.
Walking in the village you discover hidden little gems like this door with a renaissance frame (picture3), or this nice little garden (picture4). Just walking makes discover lots of old farmhouses (some farms are still active) other houses and you can even see side streets in mirrors at the street crossings (picture 5).
