There are no direct trains from Caen to CDG airport. Trains from Caen go to Gare St-Lazare in Paris.

Is this far away from the airport. Or I'm assuming there is a connection from here?

Many thanks

Gare St-Lazare is in central Paris. You can take RER Line E from there to Gare du Nord, where you change to RER Line B to CDG.

I have seen direct trains from caen to cdg but they were rare and i don.t know if they still exist. The simplest way by train is to get to le mans then direct train to cdg. Just over 4 hours. Otherwise it's to st lazare then cross paris to cdg.

cpmac: From Bayeux or Caen, is there a train to Le Mans so I can get a direct train to CDG? I don't like the idea of changing stations in Paris to get to CDG. If no train to Le Mans, what would you suggest?

You can get a train from Caen to Le Mans. Don't know if trains to cdg are frequent from le mans.

You can also take the train from Caen to Gare St-Lazare in Paris and then take a taxi directly to CDG. This would be more expensive but would be an alternative to taking the train.
