Getting to Port d'Albret

 We only offer the option of own travel to Port d’Albret due to no shared transfers being made available. We have therefore provided a detailed itinerary to help you as much as possible with local buses. It costs on average €7 each way so worth the hassle!

By Air: 

The closest airport is Biarritz.  You can travel by bus the whole way (3 changes) if you land before 11:30 otherwise land before 17:15 and there is a short taxi ride (8km) from Soustons to the UCPA centre.

Bordeaux Airport has more regular flights from the UK. You travel by train to the nearby town of Dax. However, if you land after 14:30 Sat, you will need to spend the night in Bordeaux - a beautiful town so not a bad option. On Sunday you will need to pay for a taxi from Dax to the UCPA.

  • UCPA is a unique and brilliant experience, I would not describe it as a hotel but also not hostel it is somewhere in-between. Its a place where meeting people and making friends...

  • No matter how hard you try, when you book everything separately (especially with the Euro and price of food at the moment), you will never beat UCPA.

  • Lunch and dinner were epic. Buffet style with delicious and varied options each day and night. Not cheap foods either - Full roast chickens, ribs, roast beef, etc. Unreal!

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc. We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent (7/10). Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon...
