The closest airport to us is Toulouse, which is about an hour and a half away and we will meet and drop off participants there. In order to start the course on the afternoon of the first day, participants should aim to book flights which arrive late morning, and we would therefore recommend the first EasyJet flight out of London Gatwick (approx. 08.25), or the first BA flight from Heathrow (07.35), or the first Ryanair flight out of Stansted (07.15). All of these flights are scheduled to arrive within an hour or so of each other and will allow us to combine airport transfers and get you to Arjac in time for lunch. There are also Manchester (Flybe) and Bristol (EasyJet) flights later in the day which for which it might also be possible to arrange transfers depending on demand (please check with us before booking).
In order to be able to squeeze as much teaching time into the course as possible, for the return flight, we would recommend the last flights of the day which leave for Gatwick at 21.55 (EasyJet), for Heathrow at 17.35 (BA) and for Stansted at 23.05 (Ryanair). There are alternative flights back to the UK earlier in the day, but please check with us before booking to ensure that we have enough transport and drivers to cover additional transfers.
Getting to Arjac by train is also possible, but is a longer option as there is no TGV line to our neck of the woods. There are TGV trains advertised running via Bordeaux to Toulouse, but only the Paris to Bordeaux section is very high speed so the journey time is about 4 hours and twenty minutes. The other possibility is the service from Paris Austerlitz to Caussade (Tarn et Garonne 82), but that is a 6 hour trip. We can meet and drop off students at Caussade or Toulouse stations.
