Thanks for sharing your photos mimie... they brought back so many recent memories. You had a much finer day with good views for Cruz de Ferro, but I was lucky to have much finer weather for O'Cebreiro.

Sorry I can't help with the airport for Le Puy. I had landed in Paris and took the train from there, via a transfer in Clermont-Ferrand. I think you can get closer trains from Lyon or St Etienne but I am not sure.

I flew into St. Etienne, took a bus to the train station (don't get off at the first stop and that train station!), then the train to Le Puy.

Last year I flew easyjet from London to Lyon intending to catch a train the next day but when I walked out the airport there was a mini bus going to st etienne, which I took (51 euros!). When I arrived I went to the train station and found that a train was leaving for Le Puy in 5 minutes so I caught it and arrived in the evening.

I allready ordered my tickets for springtime 2009.
Brussels - Lyon returnticket with BrusselsAirlines 138.50 euro
On the airport I hope to find a bus or a train to the railwaystation Lyon Part Dieu.
From there is nearly every our a train to Saint Etienne 10 euro, from where I want to start a part of the Camino.
I have the intention to walk to Conques or Livinac Le Haut.
From there I have to find a bus back to Le Puy from where there are trains to Lyon.
Thanks for help to make this section-puzzle compleet and ... "see you there maybe" !!

We arrive from Paris after a day in the air at Lyon, St Exupery at 8.30 am.

What is the best method to get to le Puy.

Many thanks ,

Use the bus at the airport to get to the train station. Go to the second train station; the first one will not get you there. If you speak good French, the bus driver can direct you, however, we did not, and had to take a taxi from the first bus station to the second.
