    How to come in and out Rambouillet

    by gwened Written Nov 4, 2015

    Great town link to the Royals and Republic of France, I have come here many times by car.

    The road N10 takes you here very nicely with 50 kms from Paris porte d'Auteuil and 30 kms from Versailles.great to park here some of the best are parking Hôtel de Ville, Sequoia, Vignes and Prairie with my best at the hotel de ville. A central site managed all by Urbis
    the best route planner
    and for traffic I use too

    From Paris it takes a bit over an hour. from Hôtel de ville of Paris go alon the river Seine on quai Henri IV,connect with beltway or boulevard périphérique at porte de Bercy go over Seine and continue on the boulevard périphérique; to connect with the A6b direction Bordeaux to connect with the A10 , exchange of Dourdan connect with the D149 ,just outside Rochefort-en-Yvelines connect with the D27 direction Rambouillet go in by E Leclerc supermarket to city center on the road D906 passing on your right the train station here follow city center or centre ville.

    the other route as on top page is using the N10, go out of Paris on the porte d'Auteuil on the A13 directioni Rouen, link up wiht the A12 direction Rambouillet, go straight ahead to come into the N10 naturally following direction Rambouillet, past several small towns like Trappes, until you reach Rambouillet on the D906 follow centre ville signs.

    New bus network R'Bus, using the region network internet site here
    and here are the lines for Rambouillet

    the train brings you here from Paris Montparnasse) in about 35 minutes and from Versailles Chantiers in 20 minutes. The Ile de France region public transport site Transilien will tell you all in details very easy here even in English

    The Grand Paris Express consists of a ring road around Paris (line 15) and lines , edge to edge, to capacity adapted to serve the territories in development (lines 16-17-18). line 15 of rail and underground metro aims to desaturate the dense area, passing through Noisy-Champs, Villejuif, Pont de Sèvres, Nanterre, La Défense, Saint-Denis Pleyel, Bobigny, Rosny-Bois-Perrier and Champigny Centre.

    How to get in and out ST Quentin en Yvelines

    by gwened Written Jun 27, 2015

    This may not be of tourist use but have it for the memories, my oldest son studied here and came by train or bus which I led the way... It is also a wonderful place for shopping with a great shopping center next door, and the baseball field of the Montigny Cougar the equivalent of Triple A ball in the USA;; which we came to watch. We rode by recently and decided to put some nostalgic posts here.

    The link from the local govt page is self explanatory me think. this is what is call here a nouvelle cite or new town and it is nice indeed.
    You have a pdf file with the maps to help and you can print it at home,giving you orientation on the train station and where the different buses stop

    We took the train from Versailles Chantiers to La Verriére or SQY and then bus 402, also taken 100 sometimes to get around to La Defense from Les Mureaux on the A14 express bus.

    There are 3 wonderful parking garages and we always took the Biévre as it is right underneath the shopping center/cinema/bowling alley complex.
    all above ,and the biévre is handle by Q-Park parkings here in pdf

    All of these are within walking or easy bus distance from all the towns here. A great area for cycling here is the map and on pdf the stations

    Of course many of the links for Paris works here too like the RATP ,Transilien, and v-traffic and viamichelin.

    Enjoy the new Yvelines, dept 78 In Ile de France region.

    Driving in ile de France region

    by gwened Updated Dec 14, 2014

    The île de France is the vital heart of the country. It is quite natural that the region with the capital, hence the first node of communication of the national motorway network. The Ile-de-France region has no fewer than 800 km of highways. Paris the capital is the heart of a network of motorways in Star destined to all provincial metropolises: the Autoroute du soleil (A6, Dijon, Lyon and Marseille), the A1 (to Lille), the A13 to Normandy (Rouen, Caen, Le Havre), the A4 to the East (Reims, Metz, Strasbourg), the A10 towards Aquitaine (Nantes, Bordeaux, Rennes) being the main.
    The ring road allows access to all sectors of the capital by one of the many "doors" of Paris. The A86 motorway surrounding suburbs, and the Francilienne will soon allow access to more distant suburbs to a dozen kilometers from Paris. The local network is complemented by concentric highways and national roads to the main cities of the periphery of the island of France.
    The density of the Ile-de-France network to reach a destination by a multitude of routes. The other side of the coin is that some sectors are very often saturated, particularly the joint section of the A4 and A86 in the Val de Marne. Traffic jams are almost routine in peak hours in the areas of Champigny-sur-Marne, Bondy (at the level of the junction between the A86 is and the A3), of Aulnay-sous-Bois (in the direction of Lille just after the interchange with the N2), le Kremlin - Bicêtre (N7), Pont de Saint-Cloud (A13), or the viaduc de Gennevilliers. Plugs and slowdowns occur even at any hour of the day in the areas of Saint Maurice (common section with the A86), Charenton (at the level of Porte de Bercy) and Saint-Ouen - l ' Aumône (184).

    The autoroute A16 from the north will have an extension from L'Isle-Adam to reach the N104 Francilienne around the CDG airport beltway of Paris. It has been approve construction.

    The most convenient method to help you is to read one or more route planner such as

    together with a good paper map of the region by Michelin No 514 or better IGN no R03.

    together with the traffic info above the specialise sites I use are systadin and v-trafic

    and to a lesser extend infotrafic

    the autoroutes have a site and those for this region are

    with a general site

    bon route, happy motoring

    well it is Paris airport???? or what lol!

    by gwened Updated Oct 13, 2014

    usually the tip is in the Paris page and they are. However, for the record the so call Paris airports are not in Paris but in ile de France.
    the so call CDG is in Roissy en France, dept 95 Val d'Oise just northwest of Paris ,and Orly well its in the city of Orly in Val de Marne no 94.
    that is why you need to take a much expensier train or RER ticket to get into PARIS.

    and more from the department Val d'Oise no 95 on their airport

    the transportation site is Paris
    and the
    or the ile de France transport site

    By car you get out on the A1 and enter Paris by Porte de la Chapelle, and from Orly you take the A106 than A6 to Paris. You have the RER B from CDG and the OrlyVal from Orly or the Roissybus from CDG or the Orlybus from Orly.

    Orly is small and very easy to move about, CDG is bigger and sometime confusing to visitors but its easy multilingual and well signages.
    For more see my Paris page on transportation

    late nightime you have coverage by Noctilien bus line N151 goes thru Vernouillet, with a stop at the gare SNCF Vernouillet-Verneuil. It comes from Paris Saint-Lazare ,and link the towns of Mantes-la-Jolie Poissy and Les Mureaux. all and more can be planned in English here

    for the future the line RER E, call "Eole", will come from Paris to Mantes-la-Jolie, and will passed by the gare de Vernouillet-Verneuil by 2020,or maybe before.
    They are in public debate to extend the line LNPN from Paris Gare Saint Lazare that will make the distance in rush hour to le Havre ,Caen in 1h15 ,and Rouen in 45 minutes, that now takes 2 hours. In addition users can then go direclty to la Défense,and then gare Saint-Lazare,and quicker times to the Haute and Basse-Normandie régions.

    rental cars out of Paris airports

    by gwened Updated Nov 7, 2012

    get the best prices from my all time favorites even from abroad
    deals with all majors car brokers best deals.

    at airports you pay the airport tax fee so a bit expensier. Depends which airport you find best airfare Roissy CDG or Orly.
    At CDG you go to Gare du Nord,on RER B train, rent them there, and drive out on blvd magenta towards porte de la chapelle and the peripherique or beltway, direction Rouen will link you up with Normandie.

    From Orly, better take the OrlyVal to Antony,
    rent the car at Antony,get on the A86 expressway direction Versailles ,Creteil etc,and will link up with the N12 direction Rouen St Germain en Laye, then take the A13 direction Rouen to Normandie

    avoid work hours like 7-9am and 5-7pm hours and you will be ok, use for planning estimates and ask for a map at counter from rental car company.

    hope it helps

    one of the connecting knots in the TGV track circle just south of Paris dept Essonne or no 91

    The station is service to the RER B and C of the Paris region, and the RER C is a circular line service by the TGV from Normandy to the southeast,and the TGV of provinces stop here too. The station was the backdrop decoration for the album SOS Météores of the adventures of Blake and Mortimer.
