CDG to Nice: Plane or Train? Enough time?


We are planning to land in CDG with United on May, 16th, 2024 at 10:25AM. I am wondering how much time I should leave to collect our luggage and go through customs if we wanted to also buy a ticket to depart to Nice that day on Air France (not connecting so we will have to collect our luggage) ? Would departing CDG at 1:25PM be cutting it close?

The alternative is to take the train to Nice from the airport. Does the high speed rail leave from the airport to Nice? Again, how much time do we need to account for getting our luggage/going through customs so that we can plan what time train ticket to buy?

Why not book Nice as a single ticket from wherever home is?

Or book the 345PM flight so you don't have to sweat bullets on your trans-Atlantic flight

Cutting it way too close, especially since Terminal 1 (where your United flight will arrive) is so far from the Air France terminals.
