Getting There





Driving from Calais

Cucuron is around 650 miles from Calais and would be a 10 hour drive mainly on toll motorways. Driving in France is easy and the motorways have frequent and good quality service areas. The website is good for route planning in Europe.

Train from London

You can travel via the fast Eurostar service to Aix's TGV station which is about 40 mins drive from Le Point. The train takes about six and a half hours from St Pancras and seems to cost from around £130 return per person (see


[Aix-en-Provence page]   

The Aix-en-Provence TGV station is a handy addition, because you now no longer have to travel from Paris to Marseille and then take another train back up to Aix. The Aix-en-Provence TGV station is about 10 km west of town. Shuttle buses (navettes) provide direct links to Aix-en-Provence center and to Marseille. There are also other buses, taxis and easy access to the A8 autoroute.

The very modern station (more like an airport) has shops, dining and several car rental agencies. The waiting room on the upper level is comfortable, and has a nice view of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire.

The nearest airport is Marseille which is about 40 miles from Cucuron. We normally drive from the airport but there are frequent trains from the airport to Aix-en-Provence (which takes about half an hour). From there it is about 20 miles by road to Cucuron. You could continue by train from Aix to Pertuis which is about 8 miles from Cucuron and take a taxi from there.  You can check train times on the French sncf site

There are often bargain flights to Marseille or Nice on EasyJet ( from Gatwick. They also do inexpensive car hire.
