    "This is such an easy way to travel to this part of France. The tickets arrived to my home within a couple of days of booking and were easily 'validated' at the yellow machines found at the end of each platform. The train left exactly as per the timetable, was clean and comfortable. Booking in advance meant we could get a good fare. The town was an easy walk from the station - just look for the Chateau! Be aware, there is no mobile phone use in the compartments as indicated, we found out later by the 'sleeping mobile phone' icon sticker up near the travel racks. Instead there is a section at the end of the compartment - where you get on - for speaking on your phone. Problem - the sound of the train is so loud in this part, it makes it impossible to hear and you end up shouting anyway! "
