From ferry port to train station?

by Segolily

We will be arriving on the ferry to Ouistreham and need to pick up our car at the train station in Caen. How are we going to get there? Are there shuttles? Buses? Taxis? How much should we expect to pay?

Thank you for any guidance you can give me.

According to the following websites, there is regular taxi service at 25 euro and shuttle service:

On the map it looks like Ouistreham is a few miles from Caen and it would only take a few minutes to get there, but it took us about 30 minutes of driving. Of course we had no idea where we were going, but we did make it.

Ouistreham is quite a way from Caen and we've not taken the ferry. There is a bus listed as "liason with the ferry" in Ouistreham. The web site is http://www.busverts.fr/_hiver/ and you can plug in your time of arrival and it will give you the fare.

If that doesn't work, check the Line #1 because it goes along the coast including Ouistreham and into Caen.

Have a good trip.

Thank you so much for your replies. I have checked out all the websites listed and appreciate the information. I have decided after playing around on the Busverts site and not being able to get a price for the "Liason Ferry" that we will not attempt that as our first experience in France with my limited French and our luggage. So hopefully we will have taxis ready and waiting like they say there should be.

Roadkill...30 min for 14km? Was there traffic?

RE: RE: From ferry port to train station?

Roadkill? I resemble that remark! ;-) I think I got off the highway too early and got into the small streets that run towards the D-Day beaches. My French is tres mal, and I am sure I missed the directions. Traffic was relatively light. There was traffic coming back to Caen from Bayeau, but that was around 6 PM on a weekday. I got off the periphery road that circles Caen too early and ended up taking the scenic, but slow route through Caen to return the car and get to the train station. I loved the area though. I would go back in a heartbeat. We stayed at La Ferme Reconncierre? in Crepon. The Derby Bentley club was also staying there and there were some great cars to check out.

Travel Tips for Caen

Saint-Pierre, in front of the castle gates

by Pavlik_NL

Across the square in front of the castle of the Normandian dukes, a large speer shaped tower rises up gihgh towards the heavens. This is the Saint-Pierre that dominates this part of Caen city centre. The building is a gothic structure with inside a beautiful wide spacious ship is filled with light that shines in through a 1001 windows.

OLD CAEN 5

by jayhawk2000

Not all of Caen's churches have fared as well as proud St-Pierre. Take poor St-Jean. Its central steeple was sliced off, leaving a few fingers of stone stranded in the sky. Its archways twist and its columns lean and it doesn't look like it should be able to stand, but brave little St-Jean still struggles along...

Visiting Caen

by dimilag

Caen is a city in the north west France. It is the administrative capital of the Calvados département, and the capital of the administrative Lower Normandy région whose inhabitants are called Caennais. Caen is known for historical buildings built in the time of William the Conqueror, who was buried here. From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, Caen expanded in times of Peace, building its urban image ; private Italian-style mansions, Saint-Sauveur Square and the convent buildings of the two abbeys. In the wake of the poet, François de Malherbe, the city boasted an intense intellectual era. During the 19th Century, the city entered the industrial era with the railroad and canal linking Caen to the sea in 1857. On June 6th 1944, Caen set its mark on the world stage with the Normandy Landings. From its ashes, the city grew to prove the values of peace, solidarity and human rights, so well-reflected today in Caen Memorial.

The Abbaye-aux-Hommes includes St. Etienne Abbey Church (11th, 13th and 17th Centuries) with William the Conqueror's Tomb, the convent buildings (18th Century) today's city hall, the cloister and the Guard's Room (14th Century), former banqueting hall and today the City Council Chamber. The Ladies Abbey includes the former convent buildings (18th Century), today home to the Regional Council of Lower-Normandy and the Holy Trinity Abbey Church. Magnificently restored, the 18th Century convent buildings were occupied by Benedictine nuns until the Revolution. Turned first into a hospital and then a home, they have housed the Lower Normandy Regional Council offices since 1986.

"Caen Memorial, A Museum for Peace"

Caen Memorial - "a museum for peace" stands on a plateau named after General Eisenhower. on a clifftop beneath which the Germans had their HQ in June and July 1944. Funds and material for it came from the US, Britain, Canada, Germany, Poland, the former Czechoslovakia, the USSR and France.
