It is impossible to find your room in the village on your own. People not arriving by the scheduled buses are therefore asked to come to the bus arrival point (time and place to be announced) to as to be accompanied to your room.
The easiest way to get to Ajaccio is by plane from Paris (Orly airport), Marseille or Nice. International flights generally arrive in Paris at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport. There are no direct flights from Roissy to Ajaccio, so you will have to connect to Ajaccio via Nice or Marseille. Alternatively, you can transfer to the Orly airport by taking the RER B line to Antony and then take the OrlyVal shuttle bus from Antony to Orly airport (7.20 euros). This takes about 1.5 hours from airport to airport.
The school will provide ground transportation by bus from the airport to Cargèse. There will be probably two buses on Sunday, one in the late afternoon (4-5 pm) and another to pick up the stragglers later in the evening (TBA). The exact schedule will be posted once we have everyone's travel arrangements in an effort to accommodate as many participants as possible. For the return to the airport on Saturday, we will have one bus that leaves between 9-10 am. If you arrive or leave at other times, you will have to arrange and pay for your own ground transportation. Taxis are about 85-100 euros. There is also a twice-a-day bus service every day but Sunday, see Autobus
For lecturers, it would be appreciated if they could take the buses, but taxi and pick-up services will be provided for those who can't. Lecturers, please contact
