By Train

Although the French rail system can seem daunting, a website on how to use the SCNF clearly explains the process. You may purchase tickets online via the official site for train ticketing in France. There is also an app available for your smartphone. If you have trouble using your credit card on the official site you can use Trainline, which has a good English site and charges the same prices as SNCF.

From other countries, you may be directed automatically to a RailEurope site. With RailEurope, you can opt to have tickets mailed to you or call them for help in understanding the process. However, they add surcharges and don’t always offer all options.

There is a shuttle between the Toulouse-Blagnac Airport (TLS) and the Toulouse-Matabiau train station. You can also get to Gare Matabiau by tram and metro, which is less expensive but can be a more complicated process. From Gare Matabiau you can take a train directly to Valence d’Agen. Current prices and information are available on the SNCF site and Trainline.

  • Montauban train station: 50€ /trip
  • Agen train station: 40€ /trip

By Car

Le Moulin à Nef in Auvillar, France, is near Exit 8 from the A62 autoroute about 60 miles (91 km) west of Toulouse and about 100 miles (166 km) east of Bordeaux. The Toulouse-Blagnac Airport (TLS) is 55 minutes away in non-rush hour times. Autoroutes have tolls and it is best to have cash on hand in euros, as U.S. credit cards are not always accepted and there is rarely a manned booth.
