It is extremely easy and affordable to get to the Fountains Of Escot and there are many different ways to arrive here.
The following pages have been written to help you plan a relaxing and pleasant trip to the Fountains Of Escot.
These pages describe the different ways to get here and travelling directions from the nearest airports, seaports and railway stations in France and Spain.
The «N 134» Road
We are not out in the sticks, you don’t have to travel through hours of country lanes!
We are very accessible being adjacent to the international «N 134» road between France and Spain.
This route is also known as «RN 134» or D834 or E07. It goes all the way from Pau to Saragossa in Spain passing through Oloron Sainte-Marie and Fountains Of Escot.
Oloron to Fountains Of Escot is approximately 15 min.
We have a large sign, on the right hand side of the «N 134», indicating the entrance to Fountains Of Escot.
Just outside the railway station of our nearest town of Oloron Sainte-Marie there is a bus-shuttle (part of SNCF the French railway) that follows the «N 134» road all the way up the Aspe valley to Canfranc (on the Spanish border).
Obviously don’t go all the way to Canfranc, but get off at the «Pont d’Escot» which is underneath the famous «Viaduct d’Escot» which is just before the property.
If you ask the driver the bus might stop outside Fountains Of Escot.

Renting a Car
If you are not bringing your own car it is definitely a good idea to rent a car in France!
As mentioned above public transport will bring you practically to our front door and can take you to most places, but if you really want to explore all our wonderful surroundings a car will save you time and give you greater freedom.
A good site is
for searching car hire companies and finding the best deals (select «france - rest of france» under destination for Pau and other airports).
Clear language and prices with unlimited mileage and no hidden extras.
Cars can be picked up and dropped off at almost every town, port and airport in France and Spain.
There is wide choice from a Corsa to an Espace.
Book with them and if you later find the same car cheaper, they’ll match it.
Whether you fly to the nearest airport, sail to the nearest seaport, or travel by rail to the nearest station you will find plenty of car rental companies.
Investigate car-hire prices carefully as they vary widely and can sometimes be cheaper in the big cities and Spain.
