Rail Europe - $600 for 2 round trips from Paris to Provence?

I'm traveling in July, and that is the price I'm getting from Paris to Les Arcs and back. Is there something I'm missing or is this normal? It seems VERY expensive!

July 6 to Les Arcs, then July 13 back to Paris. We're going from one vacation rental to another, then to a flight home, so we don't have flexibility with travel dates unfortunately. I'm just now finding out that I should have booked earlier. Didn't realize the price changes every day!

And you shouldn't be using RailEurope, which always has higher prices and doesn't show all the trains. But even on the SNCF site, that route on those dates is showing high prices.

I can see some trains for a little bit cheaper on voyages sncf -406 euros /2 people but it depends on exact train times.

I would book asap as the rates will almost certainly go up

It is still possible to make it for 306€ ,without the cost for luggage and tickets to Marne la vallée,if not mistaken.

There is a Ouigo tgv leaving Marne la vallée chessy station and reaching Marseille st charles

at 13:02 150€ for 2 people outward and 80 return.Plus 5€ for each suitcase.

There is then an direct intercity train- booking required- leaving at 13:18 from the same station. .38€ for 2people each way.
