"We arrived after a lengthy flight from South Africa at CDG to be told that we had to get to Austerlitz to get our train to Chateauroux which then cost us 57€ as we had a lot of luggage and were unable to use the Metro. We were told that we could not get the train from CDG direct but when we finally got to Austerlitz were told that this was incorrect and that the staff at CDG should have known as they all have the same system. Up until now we have always sung the praises of the railway system in France but now feel very disappointed. "
