We are delighted to present yet another reason to "Vive la France"!
Picture the scene - you and your family jump aboard the carriage beneath the gothic canopy of St Pancras station, and less than six hours of zipping through the beautiful French countryside (bypassing delays, transfers, queues - not to mention swollen ankles!) you reach the beautiful Côte d'Azur. Not only is this one of the most romantic ways to travel, but utterly carefree and you don't even have to leave the side of your beloved Louis Vuitton!
Eurostar is launching the London-to-Provence direct route, as well as direct routes to Avignon and Lyon departing from both St Pancras and Ashford International for Spring 2013. The high-speed service will be given a trial run during May and June; but we hope it becomes a permanent fixture in the timetable so you can stay in one of our fabulous properties in the South of France.
"Et voila!" - return tickets cost from £99.00 to Lyon and £109.00 for Aix-en-Provence and Avignon; on sale from 11 December 2012, for travel between 4 May-29 June 2013. Journey times start from 4h 45mins to Lyon.
