We stayed at the Novotel Compans Caffarelli which was excellent. Easy for transport to/from the airport and also to the ground. Set in a park just of the main drag with a couple of pubs on. There is an English guy who gets in the Metling pot who acts as an unofficial liaison officer. The Broncos also stayed here.


How easy is the ground to get to from the centre of Toulouse or, are we talking walking distance ?

It's a fair distance from the city centre. Possibly 30 mins on the bus which goes from near the Melting Pot (bus station close by). The ground is in an outlying quiet village.

At the ground you have to buy tokens to purchase anything including beer etc!
Mac out!

The 'outlying quiet village' of Blagnac has a population of 24000 which incorporates Toulouse Airport into it's village atmosphere .....:lol:

The ground must be located in a quiet corner of this bustling metropolis. I didn't see a soul where we got of the empty bus until I got to the ground. This being a Sat afternoon!
Build it up all you will.

Not building anything up, just saying a town of 24K people isn't a 'village', not down here anyway - Is Normanton considered a village ?

Normanton is "no mans land", it's only there to keep Castleford and Wakefield apart. Mind you, you see a lot more "orange" in Normanton these days. :D

So, the ground is easy to get to and from by bus from the centre of Toulouse ?

Yeah, went to Normanton a few months back - it was closed...

Yeah, the ground is easy enough to get to by either tube and bus or just bus depending on where you are.

Hopefully it will be ten times easier in 2019 when the regular ground is ready. That's either a good walk or a few stops down the line on the tube.
