Cordes-sur-Ciel

Getting Here

In July and August, a bus runs the 25 km (16 miles) from Albi's bus station on Place Jean Jaurès to the bottom of Cordes twice daily. At other times of the year, you'll have to take the train to Cordes-Vindrac, where it's frequently served from Toulouse (1¼ hrs) and Albi (1 hr). There's also a year-round bus from Albi to Cordes-Vindrac; from Cordes-Vindrac, it's 3 km (2 miles) to Cordes via bike, taxi, or walking. Note that traffic is banned in the upper town in summer and parking nearby is virtually impossible.
