On arrival we had a really hard time finding the shuttle to the train station - despite being able to read a little French. The maps indicate 'navette' (shuttle) but at the sidewalk the only navette was going to Andorra! Fortunately we happened to look up in time to see a bus at the next curb towards the parking lot (near the machines to pay for parking) - none of the maps or the nice ladies in the Information area had told us that important piece of info. On departure be prepared for extremely thorough security (as in checking the contents of your pockets even if it's only paper). We visited the Croix du Sud lounge and found that to be very pleasant - we headed upstairs and for most of the time had the whole place to ourselves - coffee machines cookies and chocolates wine and beer (no champagne) TV and a few newspapers and magazines (in all European languages including English) for something more substantial we went downstairs to the snack stand for pains au chocolat and sandwiches.
