Car hire is available at all airports and can be booked in advance.

At "Driving directions" enter Castelnau Riviere Basse with the post code as 65700.
We are easily found, being on a hillside overlooking the D935 which is the main road from Riscle to Maubourguet.

Take the D58 next to Chateau Montus, which is clearly identifiable and is a major producer of Madiran (red wine) and Pacherenc (white). Immediately turn left on to the minor road running parallel with the main road. After around 200 yards, La Teranga (the first house) is visible on the hill to your right.

Rail travel
Our nearest local rail station is:-
Tarbes (40 mins drive)

Toulouse is a major rail terminal and is approx 2 hours drive.

There is a motorail service from Lille to Toulouse which we have used and found to be excellent but make sure you book an evening meal in advance if you take this option as on the spot booking can be difficult/impossible.
Snacks and drinks are served on the train but these are not only limited in choice but also in quantity and have been known to run out.
