Paris-Dordogne-London Transportation Planning

Jump to last reply

Hi travelers. The help was so great here when I asked about London hotels, I want to throw another question out there. Am planning a trip the last week of May and first week of June 2014, a week in France and a week in London. I need help with transportation on the France leg of the trip. Here's the overall plan:
-Fly into Charles de Gaulle, spend a couple days in Paris
-Travel to Sarlat from Paris via Bordeaux, spend 2-3 days
-Return to Paris, spend another day
-Depart for London via Eurostar. Will the subway or train be accessible just about anywhere in Paris to get to whatever gare has the Eurostar to London?
-What is the best pass to get for three non-consecutive days of getting around Paris?

I lived in France for 16 months, but it was 30 years ago. I used to really know how to get around--now I'm fuzzy. In fact, my head is about to explode! Here are a few questions. (Please tell me if I should break this down into separate posts--I don't want to have bad etiquette.)

1-Getting from the CDG airport to a hotel in Paris via public transport--what's the best way? Subway lines or trains--and is there a universal pass to purchase that will enable us to use various modes of public transport while we're in Paris? There used to be a carte that was good for a month--is there anything good for say, a week?
2-Paris to Bordeaux to Sarlat--I think that topic is covered pretty well on here, but additional tips are welcome.
3-Getting back to Paris from Sarlat via Bordeaux, and then to wherever we need to be to catch the Eurostar the following day. Help!

Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any insights to getting around France. Oh, and we don't want to rent a car. Period. I traveled all over these places using public transport back in the early 80s, so I know it can be done.
