Are there any businesses running coaches from Fontenay-le-Comte to The Cinescene at Puy du Fuy?
My boyfriend and I are trying to get from Marseilles to Saint-Lo but direct flight are incredibly expensive. I was hoping to take RyanAir for a total of about 100 euro to Nantes and then take a bus or train to Saint-Lo but I can't seem to find any information. Is that possible?
Crazy question - is there a "chateau card" which we can buy which will allow us access in to a number of the chateaux rather than pay for individual entrances - does anyone know of one. We do similar things in the UK
I will be taking the train from Les Sables-D'Olonne to Nantes, how far is the rail station to the airport?
Hello, We are 3 adults travelling by car from MSM to Brion(our B&B)and would like to halt for some time n Angers for lunch and explore some parts of the city. What do you recommend to visit and where should we park our car? thank you sfree
We will actually be travelling on Saturday 7 July from the ferry port in Ouistreham to Blaison-Gohier 49320 - not far from Angers. I have checked distance and driving times on both viamichelin and theaa route planners. They both give the distance as about 275 km. Routes look similar but driving time on viamichlin is given as 4hours 40 minutes and only just over 3 hours on theaa site. As we won't dock until 11.30am the shorter time would be preferable and I find that time difference hard to understand. Can any regular French road users please advise - psmalo, gwened. anyone...?
Hello, We are plannig a holiday in Saint-Jean-de-Monts from 14th of July. Since we don't just want to sit on the beach we definately want to rent a car. However we are undecided where to pick it up. Since the rental cost is the same it makes sence to pick up at Paris airport and drive all the way. On the other hand TGV is faster to Nantes and don't need to do the driving. But for 2-2,5 hours the price tag seems to be high. Obviously if large traffic (jam) is already expected than it is another pro on the TGV side. When will the holidays start in France? Can we expect a normal flow of traffic on 14th of July from Paris to Nantes? Or is it likely that the drive will take more time than what Google/Michelin calculates with? Also what is the highway cost from Paris CDG to Nantes? (to compare apple to apple: TGV price vs. driving cost). Thanks in advance

Hi, please advise if it is best for budget travelling to take train from Paris to Nantes and then change to a Clisson train or is there any cheaper or more convenient public transport alternative. Is there a camping site or youth hostel in Clisson? Enquiries on behalf of young adults coming for the music festival in June. How would they get from their place of stay to the festival grounds - are the grounds far from town centre?
I've been exploring Saumurs, Chemille, Poitiers,etc. trying to find an interesting village where we can rent a house for a few weeks and tour several villages of my ancestors in that area. We'd like to be near the river and within an hour of Angers for convenience of trains. Any ideas?
I'm playing with some possibilities for our trip to France in September. Anyone know anything about some short cruises on the Loire in area of Angers? I'm thinking I would top out at about 3 days, but thought seeing the castles and such would be beautiful from the water.
Hi. It appears as if I've left it too late to book accommodation for the Le Mans 2012 motogp round. Can anyone help with possible options for accommodation close to the track? It will be two people travelling, we will have a car and aren't too fussy with accommodation. Probably mid range would suit us best. I also heard some locals open up their doors for the events. Is there a website where there might be some information for this? I appreciate any replies or advice I can get.
Hi can you give me any idea about getting a taxi pick up from the railway station. Thanks alec
Dear Travelers, I want to travel by bus from Paris to Angers possibly on winter. Is there a line servicing this route? How much does it cost? I would be most grateful for the links to some internet sites of bus lines (if possible in English, my French is on level zero). Do you know if there is a bus to Angers straight from airport in Paris(Beauvais)? Thanks in advance!
what is the nearest airport and what are the train and bus services

Hi there, we are travelling back from the Dordogne to Roscoff and we could like somewhere to stop over about half way as we are travelling with our 10 month old baby. I know there are plenty of hotels about, but we were looking for something a little special, a hidden gem maybe? And thought you lovely people may have some suggestions? We don't mind going a little out of our way either, I was looking at the areas around Nantes, Angers, La Roch Sur Yon etc etc but not in built up town somewhere quiet, with a restaurant too. Hope you can help! Leah
Hi, everyone! I will be in Nantes from May 29 to June 19 for a math summer school and conference. I think I have figured out how to get to the Université de Nantes (Faculté des sciences) from the airport by bus/tram/navette, but my flight out on June 19 leaves at 7:30 am. Given that this is an early international flight (NTE to CDG to DTW) on a Sunday, it doesn't seem like public transportation would work. Does anyone know if there is a cheap way to get to the airport this early on a Sunday? My default at the moment is to take a taxi, but that will probably be costly. :( Thanks for any help! --Becky
I am arriving in Nantes Airport on 5th July, I need to get to Les Sables D'Olonne. I did the journey last year by taxi from the Airport to The train Station, but this year there will be 3 Adults and two children aged 2 & 4. Firstly are there any regulations about Children so young travelling in Taxi's, and Secondly, is Public transport easy to come by for this Journey. Thirdly, can I get a Bus Direct to Les Sables.
Hi I have decided to stay in Angers for 2days in July and use it for a base for exploring the Loire Valley. I will be driving to Angers from Paris and Intend to stop over in Saumur on the way. I would like to know what is the most scenic route to drive from Saumur to Angers? I would also like to know if there is enough to see in Angers to occupy me and my family for 2 days and if so what are the main sights and what are the best things to do etc. Obviously we intend to visit the chateaux and tapestry etc.
I've researched the www.ligeris.com website for Tours and have seen that there are 4+ companies doing tours of some of the Loire chateaux. Is there any preference? I'm thinking they must all be about the same, yes? I want a morning visit to both Azay Le Rideau and Villandry, and there seems to be at least 3 companies listed that will do those castles, but which one is better or do they all use the same minivan just that the payment goes to a particular company? I was hoping to select the company that would most likely be up for visiting one other castle before we head back to the tourist office, if we cut our visit to Azay and Villandry short...is that even possible? So many choices, and so few reviews available on these companies!
If I am staying 1 night in Tours, and want to visit both Azay le Rideau and the Abbey Fontevraud (Fontevrault, same place?) in the same morning (can't go longer than 1 morning, have to catch the train to Chartres that afternoon), how do we do it by public transport? (no car, just train or bus, there and back to Tours, please?). Rolling a couple new spots to visit around in my mind....
