Anybody have a link to the French Rail reservation website?

In English? I got on the site in French, but am not confident in my bookings because they are all in french. Thus, I don't want to reserve a ticket until I see it in the mother tongue. :). Anyone know if you can just buy tickets to SPPdP from Bordeaux on the day of the train ride? Thanks!

Try for french rail, with an english language link on the site.

Tickets can be bought at Bordeaux on the day. You'll need a train to Bayonne then change there for SJPdP. It will all depend on timetables.

Another good site is for timetables and fares.

Fodors Travel has a web forum, broken down by destination. Recently a poster on their Europe forum posted a very comprehensive step by step guide to booking French tickets online. I'll try to paste in the link here, but if that doesn't work, go to, click on Europe and then do a SNCF search for France. The post's name is something like MorganB's guide to SNCF. I found it very helpful for a trip last month.
