Travel by Rail

Getting here

A car is essential when staying with us.  However, rather than flying, why not consider taking a train to our region, then hire a car for sight-seeing!

At the moment, there are no direct trains from London to the Charente Maritime region.  It is, though, possible to take the Eurostar service to Paris Gare de Nord, then change and take a TGV - usually from Paris Montparnasse station.  The closest TGV stations to le Triskele, all of which have hire car offices on site, are:

Niort 2 hours 20 minutes 45 minutes
