A few questions about a Dijon to CDG airport

Jump to last reply

Ok. I have mostly worked out my travel plans for our France trip (Sept 8-21). Trying to work out the last leg of this trip:

Sept 8-14: Paris
Sept 14-18: Colmar
Sept 19-21?

After considering everything from Lucerne to Heidelberg :-), we have come down for saner, closer to CDG considerations for 18th to 20th. And Dijon looks really interesting, conveniently located and well-connected by TGV (actually. someone on these forums gave me the same suggestion when I started planning this trip).

So, here is what I am trying to find out:

-Our flight out of CDG is at 1130 am. How practical is it to expect transport from the town to Dijon station for catching a 713 am to CDG. This train reaches CDG at around 9 am. Is that cutting it too close? Should we simply pack it in on 20th evening and stay over at
ibis Paris CDG Airport hotel for the 20th night?

-It is feasible to get a car rental for 1-2 days in Dijon and cover Auxerre, Abbaya de Fontenay and/or Vezelay on one day. Then the other option could be do a slow drive on 20th to the CDG airport, drop the car off there and take the shuttle to the Ibis CDG hotel for the night.

I would love to have other ideas too for a base for 18th to 20th Sept.

Would much appreciate your thoughts!
