Our courses are typically run from Castelnaudary, South West France which is conveniently located close to major transport links.

Airports

Castelnaudary is less than an hour away from Toulouse and Carcassonne airports which offer a selection of flight operators from many different airports, however, these are mainly short-haul.

  • Toulouse airport – Air France, Easyjet, British Airways, Ryanair, Flybe, Jet2.com, KLM to name a few
  • Carcassonne airport – Ryanair only

Both airports have a shuttle ‘navette’ services for minimal costs which take you direct to the relevant city train stations.  Or you could hire a car from the many companies based at each airport.

For those travelling long -haul, France’s main airport, Charles de Gaulle in Paris offers many options from worldwide locations, but of course leaves a fairly lengthy trip to the south of France; usually around 6-9 hours.  However, there is an alternative option of flying into Barcelona airport in Spain.  This may seem odd, but Barcelona and Toulouse are linked with an excellent high speed train service; usually halving the journey time.
