Trains

Hello-Could anyone tell me which train I would take from Chinon to the CDG airport? My friend and I have decided to rent a car for most of our two week stay in Chinon. Thanks for the helpful advice.

Basically you would need to take a train from Chinon to St Pierre des Corps (eastern outskirts of Tours). From St Pierre des Corps there are a few TGVs each day which go direct from St Pierre des Corps to CDG.

Looking at the timetable, the limiting factor seems to be that there is only one train from Chinon each day which connect with a TGV at St Pierre des Corps.

As you will have a hire car, an option would be to drive to St Pierre des Corps from Chinon (45 minutes) and hand your hire car in there, assuming that the car is from one of the main rental companies which have offices at St Pierre des Corps.

You then have a choice of TGVs to CDG.

Picking a random date of 27/08/09 gave me these trains:

dep 10:23 arr 12:09

dep 13:32 arr 15:21

dep 16:56 arr 18:41
