International airports are within easy driving distance to Assignan - Carcassonne (45 minutes), Montpellier and Perpignan (1 1/2 hours), Toulouse (2 hours), and Barcelona (3 hours). Ryanair now flies direct to Béziers as well as Montpellier, Carcassonne and Perpignan.
There is an excellent railway system (SNCF) with TGV connections (super-fast trains) from Paris and beyond to Béziers and Narbonne (both 30 minutes from Assignan).
Almost as much as in its railways, France prides itself in a good road system, making the south of France accessible in a day's drive from the northern Channel ports. And now, thanks to the recent completion of the Millau Viaduct (an amazing, unique structure and tallest bridge in the world, linking Clermont-Ferrand to Béziers via the A 750 spur), the drive is conveniently smooth and direct.
