Travel

How to get to the city   

 

Air:         Castres is just 45 miles from Toulouse, which might well  offer a more realistic alternative.

                There is an airport outside Castres in Mazamet, with very limited access via Paris Orly.

The airport is seven miles from the centre of town, and there is no shuttle bus, but only a 10-minute taxi ride

There appears to be a shuttle bus in both directions between Toulouse Airport and Castres-Mazamet airport.

 

Rail        There are around 10 trains a day between Toulouse Matabiau and Castres.The journey takes about an hour and a quarter.

The Gare de Castres is located on Avenue Albert 1er , about 11/2 kilometres to the south-west of the city centre, and around 3 km from the stadium.

 

Road      For a route planner try:

                www.viamichelin.com

                It is 50 miles due west of Toulouse along the N126

Parking:               The stadium is located in a residential area so there is only limited street parking available.

But at least there are loads of car parks in Castres.

On the east side they can be found at Place Sainte Claire, and Boulevard Raymond Vittoz

On the west side they can be found at Place de l'Albinique and Boulevard des Docteurs Sicard.
