From City to Surf:New flights to Pau spells good news for London travellers this Easter

Perfectly timed for an early Easter getaway, Cityjet, a subsidiary of Air France, are launching new flights from London City Airport to Pau in south-west France thrice weekly as of 2nd April offering residents an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life as well as royal wedding mayhem!

The city of Pau is only 1 hour and 20 minutes drive from the surf capital of France, Biarritz allowing Blighty residents to switch one capital for another with terrific ease. The flight will only take 1 hour and 40 minutes so you can be dipping your toes (and your board!) in the Bay of Biscay by lunchtime after leaving home at breakfast.
The news is welcomed by the numerous second home owners in the region too. Pau offers excellent access to both the nearby Pyrenees ski resorts, Lourdes, as well as the beach destinations such as Biarritz.
Speaking about the new flight services soon to commence, Steven Worboys, Managing Director of Experience International, said:
“Whilst the new flights will connect city to city business travellers, Cityjet’s route from London City to Pau will further open up this region to holiday makers and home owners from the south-east of England. There is a great demand for homes in the south-west of France with its stunning and varied scenery; owners achieve the best of both worlds with close proximity to the mountains and established ski resorts in winter and the coast in summertime.
“A popular choice for owners is Les Patios Eugenie, a luxury development of 62 units, from studio to 3 bedroom duplex cabin apartments, just 400 metres from the beach with an outdoor heated pool, spa, sauna, massage cabins and whirlpool. It oozes charm and appeal with its contemporary yet traditional architecture.
“We understand that owners want a hassle free purchase with luxurious amenities and with easy access from the UK making it perfect for personal use or rental and this development certainly ticks all the boxes.”
