We (party of 6) are traveling from Athens to CDG (landing at 11:55 a.m. on Sat, 5/28) and then heading to Cassis for a week. Options are:
1. Auto. Our plan was to pick up a minivan and drive to Provence, since we wanted a van for the week anyway. Looks like we'd be lucky to arrive at our apartment around 10-11 p.m.
2. Train. Best timing leaves at 1:52 p.m., a little tight on the layover for my nerves(just under 2 hours). The later train is safer on time, but the car rental places all seem to be closed when we would arrive (8-9 p.m.).
3. Fly. We'd have to transfer to Orly for the flight (BIG difference in flight costs renders flight from CDG cost prohibitive). Orly to Marseilles flight at 4:30 pm arrives at 5:45 p.m and we'd have about an hour drive to our apartment.
Anyone have any experience with these options? Alternate suggestions?
