hot air balloon rides in Chenonceau area

Our party is trying to decide whether to take a sunrise or sunset hot air balloon flight. If we take the sunset flight we need to know what train station services the Chateau of Chenonceau area? Is there a train that leaves from that station going to Paris at that time of night? Thank you for your help.

there is no train from Chenonceaux to Paris - you have to go through Tours. The last train to Tours is 20.35, the last train from Tours to Paris is at about 23.15

Taking the train is probably not going to work all that well for you -- the sunrise flights are **very** early (5-6 am) and the sun sets **very** late in the summer -- 10h30-11pm.

It would be far better to schedule an overnight in Chenonceau, no matter which end of the day you choose.
