Closest Airports and Car Rental

Cyclists or visitors would need to fly to either the Rodez (80 km) or Toulouse (125 km) airports.   Most major European cities have direct flights to Toulouse. The easiest way for smaller groups to reach Plaisance is by rental car, easily arranged at either airport. It is ideal to have access to a rental car during one’s stay, to enable ease of travel to nearby villages and attractions.  The website normally offers reasonable rates with favourable cancellation rules.  Please refer to the How to get to Plaisance page for directions!

Taxi Service:

The Coupiac Taxi service located at a nearby village to Plaisance offers to pick up any guests from and return them to either the Rodez or Toulouse airports for Euro 170 for up to 8 people.  Albi pick-up or returns cost Euro 70 outside of public holidays or Sundays.  Cycling Magnolias is also able to arrange direct airport pick-ups or returns, please enquire.
