 PARKING at Airports     http://www.parking4less.co.uk

 Eurostar / TGV

If taking the Eurostar from London to Agen, request to go via Lille, you only have to cross a platform with your luggage!

The TGV train runs from Lille and Paris to Bordeaux and Agen.

Paris to Agen is approx. 4 hours. 

Agen is about 50 minutes from  Chateaux Trichot and Cardou, or change trains at Agen and take the small train to our local railway station, (about 6 miles) at Monsempron-Libos.  For Lamostonie the main station is Cahors, though Gourdon is the closest.  

If you want a day in Paris then you can arrive at Paris Nord/North, on the Eurostar and then cross Paris to Paris Montparnasse, on the South side of the city, to continue your journey on the TGV, the high speed express train.
