La Roane, in south west France, is peaceful and secluded as well as being easily accessible, with good air, train and road connections.
Most courses in 2020 will start and finish mid-week. This is to avoid expensive weekend flights with unsociable hours and crowded roads, trains and airports. PLEASE AVOID THE EARLY MORNING RYANAIR OR EASYJET FLIGHTS. We always leave at least three hours before your departure time and we don’t like getting up in the middle of the night!
The usual things: sun cream, a book for the plane (quite a good selection of books in our library), insect repellent (normally very few mosquitoes), a torch for night walks (although we do have several torches), a fleece or sweatshirt for cooler evenings, an outdoor towel (older towels are available should you forget) and some euros (you will find cash machines when we go out on excursions) and of course, a big smile!
Yoga mats, yoga props, two indoor towels and hairdryers are supplied.
This is the easiest and most comfortable way to get to La Roane. Toulouse is our local airport, just one hour away. There are regular flights to Toulouse from most major UK airports. PLEASE AVOID THE EARLY MORNING AND LATE EVENING EASYJET AND RYANAIR FLIGHTS.
The budget airlines bring out their 2020 schedules around October 2019 and prices are much cheaper if you book as soon as the schedules come out. Make searching for your flights easier with flightnetwork.
We offer a £60 (£30 each way) TAXI SERVICE from Toulouse airport to La Roane on the day the course commences, returning you there a week later (£45 return for 11th September).
In order for our taxi service to work, we cannot guarantee to be ready and waiting for every single flight. We do our best to keep your waiting time to a minimum but especially if travelling alone, you may have to wait for other flights to arrive. The early afternoon Easyjet flight from Bristol (arriving at 13.30) and Gatwick (arriving 14.05) are ideal and will always be met.
Email us if you have any doubts!
MEETING OUR DRIVERS
As you exit customs, look out for our friendly taxi driver who will be holding up the “La Roane” sign. We will email you the driver’s mobile number before you leave and we will ask you to supply us with yours. You will be informed of precise pickup times a few days before departure.
RETURNING TO THE AIRPORT
Most flights from Toulouse return in the afternoon and we usually provide a light lunch before leaving around 1 pm. Please avoid the early morning flights as it’s a very early start and we can’t guarantee getting you there on time!
If you wish to extend your stay, or come a few days early, we have arranged a car hire discount with www.rhinocarhire.com from Toulouse Airport or Caussade, contact us for details on how to redeem the discount and if you need any information on the surroundings.
Some people prefer to come by train.
You leave early in the morning from St Pancras on the Eurostar and then ride the metro across Paris. From Paris you can either:
If you are coming ALL THE WAY to La Roane by train, then the taxi ride is on the house! (both ways).
