Travel to La Baume Frejus from Nice Airport

Hi we are travelling from Nice Airport to La Baume Eurocamp in Frejus, Can someone advise the best way to travel is it A) By bus to Frejus or B) by bus to Nice st augustine then train to Frejus. There will be five in our party 3 adults a 4 yr old and an 8 yr. Our plane will arrive in Nice at 11.10 am. I read a post from a year ago that suggested you have to pay full price for children on the bus which meant we were looking at a grand total of E100.

Thank you

Hi

On bus 3003 that links Nice Airport to St Raphael/Frejus, children over 3 years old pay full fare. Fare on that bus is currently 20€. You can get a pack of 10 fares directly from the bus driver for 140€ & you can use the rest for your return trip.

The train for that trip will run you about 12€ for adults without discounts and about half that for children.

For larger parties such as yours, a car rental is useful even if just for one day. Earlier this year, I rented a small car that could fit 5 for 60€ (but w/ minimum insurance coverage) with a return in St Raphael. You would likely get best deals online for this. It's useful to get you direct to the campsite and to stock up on items you may need for your stay.

The bus is the more convenient option by public transport, so long as the timetable works for you. The bus leaves directly from Nice airport (both terminals) and arrives at Frejus bus station. From there you can catch a local bus to La Baume (about 5km) on route 1bis (July/Aug) or 1 (rest of the year) though they're not very frequent - timetable here:

There are usually taxis waiting at Frejus bus station.

By train, you need to get yourself to either the main Nice-Ville station or to St Augustin. The latter is walkable from Terminal 1 and an even shorter walk from the first stop after Terminal 1 (called Arenas) on the inter-Terminal bus. There's advice on the Nice Airport website but it's a bit awkward even for unencumbered adults who know the way and perhaps better avoided with small children. If, however, you do take the train, I'd recommend getting off at St Raphael which is the main transport hub for the Frejus-St Raphael conurbation and taking a bus or taxi from there. There are always taxis waiting in front of St Raphael station and the bus station is next to the rear exit.

Overall, I'd endorse the advice that the way to have a more enjoyable stay is to hire a car.
