Arrival in Cahors

Cahors train station is about 100 km from TOULOUSE (to the South) and 600 km from PARIS (to the North).

At Toulouse airport, a shuttle can take you to the MATABIAU train station at the centre of TOULOUSE.

From MATABIAU station, several trains go to CAHORS daily. They are bound either for PARIS, or for BORDEAUX (with a transfer in MONTAUBAN for BORDEAUX).

To reach CAHORS by train from PARIS, it is preferable to go to AUSTERLITZ train station. If you travel from MONTPARNASSE train station, you will have to go through BORDEAUX with a transfer in MONTAUBAN. From AUSTERLITZ station, you need to take a train bound for CAHORS or TOULOUSE. PARIS-CAHORS by train takes about 5 h 30 min.

The CAHORS station is very close to the following hotels: Hôtel TERMINUS (BALANDRE) is 100 m away, while Hôtel VALENTRE and HOTEL de France are both 200 m away from the station.


Upon you arrival, you may register as soon as Sunday 9 October from 5 pm at the ESPACE CONGRES (place BESSIERES) in CAHORS. The ESPACE CONGRES is 15 minutes on foot from the train station. Florence will be there to welcome you.
