The best way is to take the fast speed TGV train from Paris Montparnasse train station, 45 minutes, to Vendôme Villiers or to Le Mans, and rent a car there. This way, you don't have to negotiate the exit from Paris with a rental car (always a rather complicated adventure!) and the country roads all around our chateau and in our region are easy to drive around and fun and beautiful. We provide our guests with detailed maps and itineraries and suggestions.
