Morning train from Gare Montparnasse to Gare de Lourdes takes up to 6 to 7hours.
My second trip to Lourdes and this time we booked a bigger place for us three. Appart’hotel Saint Jean overlooks the Ousse with a balcony to glance across to Ossen, Hautes-Pyrénées.
How to get here: Exit the station and walk through the carpark to Av. de la Gare. Take Bus L5 to Pont Vieux. The designated bus stop is situated right in front of Appart’hotel Saint Jean. The bus conductor will tell you how much to pay and also direct you where to alight.
A beautiful sight indeed of the beautiful hills and the towering mountains in such a peaceful noon as we prepared ourselves with carry-bags before heading to the supermarket to purchase some grocery to keep us fed during our stay.
