TGV to holiday villas in the south of France is becoming an increasingly attractive option for holidaymakers this year due to the disruption being caused by the volcano in Iceland.
Already an increasingly popular choice for family villa holidays in the south of France demand has accelerated this year as the scale and unpredictability of the impact of the Icelandic eruption is being felt by more and more travelers.
It’s no surprise that following the second wave of interruptions we are receiving more requests for information than ever before regarding TGV routes to access holiday villas in Languedoc, villas in the Dordogne, villas in Provence and villas in the Cote d’Azur.
Having personally been caught up in the delays to flights on both occasions now and having recently resorted to using the TGV I can understand peoples desire to avoid the difficulties of unpredictable cancellations to flights and the smooth, comfortable and actually rather stylish mode of travel offered by the TGV high speed trains.
The TGV stations such as the one I used at Aix en Provence are occasionally custom built and very modern with good amenities and above all hire car services on the spot. So you can arrive as you would by plane, pick up your hire car and off you go to your holiday villa.
The main TGV hub is Paris which in turn connects with many European capitals by high speed train so there is potential to travel to a villa in the south of France from London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels and so on purely using this fast efficient service which doesn’t require the lengthy check in which is so tiresome at airports.
For villa holidays in the Dordogne and villas in the south west coast there are TGV stations at Bordeaux, Angouleme, Brive la Gaillard, Limoges and Biarritz. Languedoc villas are serviced by TGV stations in Perpignan, Montpellier and Nimes. For Provence villas there are TGV stations at Aix en Provence and Marseilles. For Cote d’Azur villas there is a TGV station at Nice. You can even get to a villa in Brittany using the TGV station in Brest. For more information see the TGV rail information website or the SNCF travel site.
