Getting to your Holiday
We travel to Paris Gare du Nord by Eurostar from London St Pancras International. From here we have a transfer vehicle to take us Paris Gare Montparnasse and then take the TGV direct to Tours. We will then have an hour’s transfer by private coach from Tours train station to Chinon.
If you are travelling to Chinon on your own it is important to note along with the information below that the Hotel Diderot reception closes at 21.00 every night, therefore it is very important that you arrive and check-in before 21.00, otherwise the doors will be locked and that If you plan to meet the group at Tours Station, NOTE that there are two exits at the front the station. When the group arrives by train, they take the left-hand side exit (facing the station façade from outside the exit is on your right). Please wait for the leader and group there.
During the week we will travel on foot, by road and by train/bus.
Booking Your Own Travel Arrangements
If you wish to organise your own flights from either a non-UK or UK regional airport, or travel by rail or car to your holiday destination, 'land only' reductions are often available. If you choose to do this, before finalising any independent travel arrangements, please check with us first - especially if doing so 12 weeks or more before your intended date of travel. If you do intend to join your holiday locally please do tell us at least 14 weeks in advance.
If you are joining and leaving your holiday overseas we assume, unless you advise us otherwise, that you will join and leave the holiday at the hotel. Although airport/train station transfers are not included for those making their own independent travel arrangements, if you wish to join the group at the overseas airport/train station, depending on your flight/train arrival time, you may be able to be included on the group's transfer. Please contact us at least 5 weeks before departure for more details.
Please note that your flight/train must arrive within 30 minutes of the group flight/train to be able to join the group transfer. We also need your flight/train number, arrival time and departure point so that your Adagio Leader is able to meet up with you.
