I'm happy to drive but it's the southern tip of France and would cut at least 2 days off the holiday!

I live in Yorkshire, and the nearest airports to the resort (Cauterets) are Lourdes/Pau and Toulouse. A couple of companies (e.g. Ryanair etc) do cheap flights but they're from London, my local airports don't fly to Toulouse til the Summer season and the damn European Motorail doesn't operate during winter either!!

I'm happy to drive, fly or train it down there - is there anyone that can advise on the cheapest method? Even if it's recommendations to pick up dirt cheap train tickets to London and fly from there...

Thanks for helping!
