    Low-cost flights from the UK

    Ryanair, the Irish cut-price airline, fly to south-west France from 'London' Stansted. There are daily flights to/from Biarritz.

    Unlike some of Ryanair's destinations, the airport at Biarritz is quite close to civilization, the nearest railway station is within walking distance while the town is accessible by bus. The airport is small and very easy to transit.

    In December 2004 regular flights also began from Amsterdam to Pau, with a 3-year enticement by the regional authority. Basiqair are another of those good value low-cost airlines, this time Dutch.

    Ryanair unfortunately (but not unexpectedly) withdrew their service to the lovely Pau airport circa 2012 when the local council refused to continue the airline's subsidy.

    Hello tourists, commerce and more greenhouse gases!!

    Small and friendly

    We flew with FLYBE from Birmingham to Bergerac on our last trip and found this to be a good choice. Small planes and efficient staff make this a great alternaitve to the larger airlines who do not even use your name! Two hours and you are in Bergerac. Great! Would certainly use them again if the price is right.

    Prpellers and all!

    Bergerac airport is not the most friendly places and it is slow. Two tin huts and a bar in between is the best way of describing it. Of course you have to get there early because they shut the check in on time every time!! After checking in there is only the bar and the cramped basic departure lounge which does not seem to have enough seating for a plane load of people.
    There are hoever in its defence three car hire companies which meet the flights if they are late.
    Flights from Stansted and Birmingham to name two.

    Car required.

    The Dordogne covers such a large area that you really need a car to be able to get around and appreciate the views and get to some of those out of the way villages. The train does run from Bordeaux through to Sarlat but the freedom of the car is such a bonus.
