TVG station in Paris?

Other than at the airport, is there a TVG staion in Paris? We are staying at the Millesime Hotel in the 6th and are leaving for Provence after four days in the city. thanks, Sharon This might be a weird question, but remember I can't yet hold a book and the computer is left hand only. Thanks, again!

Last summer we took the TGV from Avignon to Paris Gare Lyon - just the opposite route of what you have planned! From the train station, we took a cab to the Millesime where we stayed for 6 nights! Loved the small hotel & the neighbourhood, by the way.

We booked our rail tickets before leaving for France. You can check Rail Europe or TGV websites to get an idea of departures & arrivals (times and places) before leaving home. Where do you plan to start out in Provence?

Currently, TGV departs from Gare du Nord to points North, Montparnasse to points South and West, and Gare de Lyon to points SE.

Starting this summer, trains will depart from Gare de l'Est for points East.

Like 2010 says, you'll take your TGV from Gare de Lyon.

At www.sncf.fr, you can buy the TGV tickets ahead of time, get discount PREM prices, and print them at home. Search this forum for MorganB's posts on dealing with SNCF.

We arrived early at the Gare de Lyon and had coffee at Le Train Bleu restaurant, a hold-over from the Belle Epoque. It was a memorable experience.

Thanks to everyone for the quick replies. 2010, we are landing in Paris, staying there for four nights and then training to Avignon. Our final destination is Bonnieux for the week. After tooling around Provence we are trying to decide what hotel to come back to. Our flight doesn't leave until 3:00 on Monday. Should we go straight to a hotel at CDG or try for one more night in the city? thanks, Sharon

Definitely spend your last night in Paris. You'll have plenty of time to get to CDG the next day.

Sharon: Sounds like you have a lovely trip planned! While in Bonnieux last summer, we enjoyed a leisurely lunch al fresco at Le Fournil. You will recognize it by the small fountain in the centre of a charming courtyard. Why is chilled rose the perfect paring to a wonderful meal?

With an afternoon departure from CDG, it certainly is possible to squeeze in on more night in Paris. Lucky you! Our flights home have always left in the morning, so we've opted to stay overnight in a hotel at the airport.

Bon Voyage!

Where are you staying in Bonnieux? We are staying at Gite St. Alexandre from June 23 to June 30 then we're off to Avignon till July 4th. We're taking the TGV back to Paris and staying the last three days at Hotel Des Trois Poussins (near Montmatre) We stayed there last February and loved it! It's in a very quaint neighborhood.

for Provence, yes the Gare de Lyon.
Bonnieux, a favorite village, we stop every year at Le Founil. There's a great embroidery dshop L'Abeile to pick up gifts. Also to dine nearby (10km)in Buoux, Auberge de L Loube. There's a bakery museum in Bonnieux.

You can also take TGV to Provence from Paris' CDG Airport TGV station. This is useful to plane arrivals and folks who can't book a PREM on a Gare de Lyon TGV but maybe could from CDG (or Marne-la-Vallee TGV by EuroDisney i believe)

We will spend the last three days of our trip to France in Paris at Hotel Trois Poussins, a delightful hotel in a quaint little Parisian neighborhood near Monmatre. We were there last year and can't wait to return. Bon voyage!
