We will be traveling with a 4 yr old and 8 mth old (2 suitcases, 2 carseats and stroller), and trying to understand the best option to get to the Bergerac area and how tough it will be.
1) how long does it take from landing at CDG to get through customs and transfer to Montparnasse station? (if we land at 8:20, can we make a 10:10 train)?
2) We can take the train to Bergerac from Paris through Bordeaux or Liborne - Libourne saves 30+ minutes (every minute counts after overnight flight with small children). However, there is only 5 minutes to transfer in Libourne and if we miss the transfer, it appears we need to wait 6 hours until next train to Libourne. How do i know if it's on the same track, and are trains typically on time? the bordeaux route is longer, but there's 20 minutes to transfer and more options. i assume tickets are not transferable if we buy one vs the other route.
3) we could rent a car in Libourne instead - i think it is a one hour drive to Bergerac per google maps.
