We are flying into Oakland to CDG airport on Sunday, 9/15. I use a manual wheelchair we are looking at staying the night at a hotel that is within walking distance of CDG and the train station. We are planning to take the TGV to Avignon on Monday, then renting a car in Avignon to get to St Remy. I have the following questions:
- Does anyone have a recommendation for a hotel at CDG that is close to both CDG and the TGV train station?
- In Spain, there are personnel who are paid to help disabled travelers at both airports and train stations -- do the French provide a similar service?
- When you are buying a TGV ticket, do you need to let them know what you are a wheelchair user? If so, which website can you use that provides that option?
- How much luggage can you take on the TGV trains? Where is it stored? Is there a difference between 1st and 2nd class in that regard?
