France – from July 2 to August 26 there will be new direct inter-urban (Intercités) trains between Paris-Austerlitz station and Onzain-Chaumont-sur-Loire Station, making it easy for visitors to Paris to spend a day enjoying the International Garden Festival at Chateau Chaumont.

The new direct SNCF trains will take only 1 hour and 40 minutes.

With a 7:37am departure from Paris, you will now be able to arrive in Chaumont-sur-Loire at 9:13am and spend a whole day at the festival and catch a late afternoon 17:45 (5:45pm) train from Onzain-Chaumont-sur-Loire Station and be back in Paris at 19:23 (7:23pm).

Fares start from €25,00 each way.

So rather than driving, have a relaxed, stress-free and low carbon visit!
