Question about getting to Paris from San Sebastian

We will be in SS in May for 5 nights and must get to Paris at a reasonable hour on Monday, May 16 for work related conference that begins the next day. Originally I was going to stay in SS and leave Monday am for Paris. Train schedule only has trains leaving Hendaye at 5:30am (too early) or much later in the afternoon that get us in to Paris too late. I have checked bus schedules and plane from Bilbao and nothing works.

So we either take train to Bordeaux on Sunday and then tgv on Monday to Paris or rent car on French side on Sunday, stay in Sarlat one night and maybe one cave tour and then drive to Paris and drop car off outside city. Does this second option sound too crazy hectic?

Driving this distance on nice French Autoroutes is pretty easy. Sarlat is not on the most direct route, but can be done if you want to see the caves. Saintes or Poitier would be other choices for stop overs.

Air France and Air Europe with 5 daily direct flights from Bilbao to Paris CDG (some 90 mins). Direct bus from San Sebastián to Bilbao airport in 70 mins once an hour (15€).

You could take the Eusko Tren to Hendaye and then a night train to Paris.
