Travel to Chateau de Detilly


The following notes are general in nature, the owner will however provide detailed directions prior to arrival.

From North America 

Fly to Paris, take the TGV to Tours (St. Pierre de Corps) and rent a car.  The chateau is 45 minutes by car from the TGV station.

From the UK


There are two ways to reach St. Pierre de Corps by train from London; through Paris or through Lille.  The Paris route is quicker.  Friends of the owner  left Central London and were in Tours in less than 6 hours.  They went to Gare du Nord, took the metro (with their luggage) to Gare Montparnasse then the TGV to Tours.  Apparently a very smooth journey.

We have had visitors who travelled from Central London by train (Eurostar) to Detilly.  The nearest station is Port Boulet (5 minutes by taxi).  To get to Port Boulettake the TGV from Paris to St. Pierre de Corps (a suberb of Tours), change for the local train to Saumur (no need to change platforms)


Detilly is served by Ryanair to Tours and Poitiers


For those wishing to travel by car, the best service is from Portsmouth to Caen. The ferry takes about 6 hours, enough time for a good eal or an overnight sleep.  The road from Caen to Detilly is good, mainly divided highway and is about 3 hours of easy driving.

From Northern Europe

There is a good network of autoroutes, so the time required is essentially a factor of how fast and for how long one is willing to drive.  We have had people visit who took abouth 6 hours from Germany.
