I am planning my camino Frances (May-June 2022). Can anyone suggest the access to Saint Jean Pied de Port (from Greece) that he / she thinks is better?

You can fly to Bordeaux, take the hourly shuttle from the airport to the train station, then take the train to SJPdP.

That should be fly to Biarritz, not Bordeaux

Use this website https://www.rome2rio.com/ to explore options. You don’t say from where in Greece you plan to leave. A direct flight from Athens to Bordeaux plus train appears to take about the same time and to cost about the same as a flight with a stopover somewhere and connecting flight to Biarritz plus train. There are no direct flights from Greece to Biarritz airport.

I personally would prefer the direct flight to Bordeaux.
