Getting to France from Portugal

As regards air, only operate direct daily services between Lisbon and Bordeaux but the one way prices are high. You might get a better deal buying a return and not using the return sector. have just launched a flight from Lisbon to Lyon. They also operate Lyon to Bordeaux. You might find this useful.

As regards Brittany, it is very difficult. My partner and I had to visit friends near Carhaix, over Christmas and after hours of working on flight combinations from Faro and Lisbon, I ended up hiring a car and driving.

Another option would probably be from Lisbon via a UK airport (either London Gatwick / London Stansted or Bristol) on or a combination of Easyjet / Ryanair.

A final option could be by Easyjet.comm - Lisbon to Paris Charles De Gaulle and then TGV train from Charles de Gaulle to your destination. See for more information.

Be aware that you may have to spend a night en route.
