One way would be to take a train from Milan to Paris, then a train from Paris to St-Pierre-des-Corps, just outside Tours. The only problem is that you would have to take a taxi to travel between Gare de Lyon and Gare Montparnasse in Paris.

You could also travel with changes of train in Chambery and Lyon, which might be easier.

From St-Pierre-des-Corps, you can rent a car, or take local transport to your destination.

These trains are run by the French railways, so you can get train times and costs, and make bookings, at en.voyages-sncf.com/en but use Antarctic as the "Ticket collection country" to avoid being transferred to RailEurope USA, which has higher prices and does not list all the trains.

If you have trouble with voyages-sncf, www.capitainetrain.com is a private website which has the same prices.

For the best prices on on the fast trains, book direct with the operator as far ahead as possible. Tickets go on sale 3 months before travel, and the cheapest tickets often sell out quickly. Discounted ticket prices keep going up as the travel date gets closer.

If your renting a car anyway once you get there, which is advisable, why not take a cheap EasyJet flight from Milan's Linate airport (the nearest airport to the centre) to Paris's Orly airport (on the right side of Paris for the Loire) and simply rent your car at Orly.
