    Hi Jeanette,

    For the requested itinerary, your best option would be to purchase the Eurail France Pass, as opposed to separate tickets. For the Eurail France Pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html.

    As a supplement to the rail pass, reservations would be required for each of the journeys.

    Paris CDG Airport to Rennes

    There are direct TGV trains from Paris CDG to Rennes; however, most options would involve connecting through the city of Paris.

    Trains from Paris CDG to Rennes and the city of Paris to Rennes are high-speed TGV trains on which reservations are required.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase any reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail France Pass').

    For the direct trains from Paris CDG to Rennes, you would type 'Paris Airport' in the appropriate field when purchasing your reservations.

    For trains from the city of Paris, you would just type 'Paris' in the appropriate field when purchasing your reservations.

    Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    The trains from the city depart out of the Montparnasse station. To get into the city, you would take Line B of the RER to the Châtelet–Les Halles station. At Châtelet–Les Halles, you would switch to M4 of the Paris Métro, which you would take to the Montparnasse station, from where the trains to La Rochelle depart. You would pay to take the RER and the Métro locally when you're there. The connection from the airport to the Montparnasse station would take at least 55 minutes in duration. The RER trains depart every 7 to 15 minutes.

    Paris CDG Airport to Villeneuve-Loubet

    A connection from Paris CDG to Villeneuve-Loubet would first have you commuting into the city of Paris. From Paris, you would take the TGV down to Antibes. From Antibes, you would take a short regional train over to Villeneuve-Loubet.

    The TGV trains from Paris to Antibes depart out of the Gare de Lyon station. To commute from the CDG Airport to the Gare de Lyon station, you would take Line B of the RER to the Châtelet–Les Halles stop. At Châtelet–Les Halles, you would connect to Line A of the RER, which you would take over to Gare de Lyon. The local RER trains depart about once every 7 to 15 minutes and the full trip from CDG to Gare de Lyon should take just under an hour in duration. You would pay to board the RER locally when you're there.

    Trains from Paris to Antibes are high-speed TGV trains on which reservations are required. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Paris to Antibes by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail France Pass').

    Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    The trains from Antibes to Villeneuve-Loubet don't accept reservations, so the rail pass is all that is needed to board. These trains depart once every half hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes 6-8 minutes. Schedules for trains from Antibes to Villeneuve-Loubet can be viewed by doing a search on our homepage and just typing 'Villeneuve' in the field for the arrival city.
