      Entrance to Matabieu Train Station

      by Bauhinia2002 Online Now May 6, 2014 at 8:32 PM

      Hi, wondering which way to take walking to and from Matabieu SCNF train station? I have not been to Matabieu so not sure where the entrance to the train station is exactly located.

      Coming from Grand Hotel Raymond IV, Google map direction is to cross the river at Rue de Bayard and then right onto Blvd Pierre Sernard.

      If coming from Hotel Riquet, Google map direction is to cross the river at Allee Jean Jaures and then left onto Blvd Pierre Sernard to Gare Toulouse-Matabieu. But there is also a Marengo-SCNF (Metro?) station on Blvd de Marengo if keep going straight after crossing the river.

      Which one is the correct entrance for intercites train?

      Thanks and regards.

      Need to be at the TLS at 4 AM... No hotels have shuttle that early. Booking sites and Google maps have hotels about 1 KM away, with poor information on walking other than it is close.
      Is walking/dragging luggage at 3:30 AM is this a real option?

      Booking trains on SNCF webstie to Lourdes

      by Bauhinia2002 Online Now Mar 5, 2014 at 8:41 PM


      I am looking at the train schedules from Toulouse to Lourdes on and find it rather puzzliing as a first time user.

      When I try to book the direct service on Intercites 14243 (10hr09), 14245 (12hr32) etc on 5 April or other days before that, it shows Seat reservation recommended. But when I choose to Indicate My Seat Preference it shows No places available! Does it means that all these trains are fully booked now, practically everyday from now up to 5 April?

      When I proceed to choose the journey the next page says: "On some trains, the place you requested isn't available for the fare you chose. We have reserved you a place with different criteria instead".

      I can still continue to confirm the booking if I choose to, but will I be guaranteed a seat on these trains or there is possibility that I may not be able to get on the train?

      On those services via Tarbes, such as TER 72705 connecting TGV 8585 at 12hr41, it shows No seats reservation required from Toulouse to Tarbes and No places available also. From Tarbes to Lourdes it shows Off peak and Mandatory seat reservation, and seating preference is available for selection.

      I have posted the screen shots here for reference.

      Thank you for your helps.

    • Coastal or vineyard day trips near toulouse

      by Chantal123 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 5:03 AM


      My boyfriend and I are visiting toulouse from 26th August to 2nd September. We'd like to get a few day trips in and see the surrounding areas. We particularly would like a day trip visit to a vineyard as we love wine! And we'd also like a trip to one of the coastal areas so we can walk along the beach and sit by the sea for a while.

      We would like to travel by train for any day trips but are considering hiring a car if its easier.

      If anyone can recommend places to visit, that would be fantastic!

      Thank you.


      P.s. we'd also like to visit the space museum - is this walking distance from toulouse?

    • Airbus Factory

      by ce4589 Online Now May 21, 2013 at 4:35 AM

      I am planning a trip to Toulouse as part of a 3 week France adventure. The primary reason for my trip down to Toulouse is to visit the Airbus factory but I am having trouble getting tickets.
      There seems to be limited availability on the site for September tours. (tours on 3 days only) I work in wholesale travel and have contacted some contacts I have at the French Tourist Board here in Australia and they think maybe they are only released closer to collection (possibly like train tickets 90 days prior). July is showing availability on 10 times as many days.
      Can anyone clarify this or been in the same situation? I have contacted the operator and local tourist office but they were no help. I do not want to book accommodation/train if I can't get tickets.
      Any one know about this?

    • Visiting Toulouse mid August

      by nmbr1girl7 Online Now Jul 13, 2012 at 2:18 PM

      I will be visiting Toulouse with a friend mid August we are mid 30es. We will be in Toulouse from Aug 16th evening through Aug 19th Morning. We will have a day of touring with Ophorus tour to Albi and Carcassonne (one full day). I am also looking to find a good walking tour of Toulouse (the one highly recommended on trip advisor is off in August). Please provide any recommendations what else can we do. Are there any sights not to be missed in the aforementioned places? I read a comment about Collioure? How close is that to Toulouse, is it worth visiting. Any other advice on good seafood restaurants and of course any significant sights. Also I am traveling to French Riviera after that, the best way, I found so far is on the train. Is there any other recommendations. I checked flying but seems there are only evening flights. Thank you.

      Hello: I want to go from Toulouse to Lezignan Corbieres, and in looking at the SNCF site saw an option to stop at Carcassonne. Clicking the link takes me to TEOZ site. Seems to say I have to get a separate ticket for this (Toulouse / Carcassonne / Lezignan) and that I must purchase that ticket before getting on the train in Toulouse.
      Is this correct?
      also -
      Is it correct that if I don't want the Carcassonne option, but just to go from Toulouse to Lezignan, that I do not have to buy the ticket before: I simply get on the train I want and pay on the train?
      Thank you: I love this site, have just found it and joined up. Great resource!
