Sompt - Travel by rail

Why not sit back, relax with a meal and a drink and let the train take you through France and down to Sompt? Sound tempting? Well it's a fairly easy journey and does give you a chance to take in the French countryside.

I have listed an example journey below so that you can see how simple it is:

London Waterloo to Poitiers
London Waterloo10:39
Paris Nord14:17
via Eurostar

Paris Montparnasse15:15
via TGV

Once you have arrived in Poitiers, it is then a simple case of picking up a hire car and then heading down the N10 for the hour trip to Sompt. Update April 2004 - You can now book a your train ticket, hotel and car hire all in one single transaction at the Eurostar website.

All the timetables can be checked on the site below, and you can also book online and have your tickets sent to your home:
