Le Pavillon des Gatines
a) If you are driving, coming from Paris on highway N12. Watch for the Plaisir exit on your right: taking it will put you on rue Pierre Curie. The Hotel is on left side of the road, ± 1 km from the exit.
b) If you are taking public transit from the airport (Charles de Gaulle), be aware that there are two different transit system to get to Plaisir: the SNCF and the R.E.R. Obtain (you may have to purchase) a composite transit map of Paris from your boarding station (gare). You will have to transfer in "mid city". One system goes to Plaisir: station Plaisir Les Clayes is the nearest to the hotel [ ± 3.5 km] . The second station, Plaisir - Grignon, is a few km further. The other system takes you to the St-Quentin en Yvelines station, which is ± 10 km from the hotel. I cannot tell you which system goes where. Also I am not aware of the policy for taking your bicycle, whether boxed or not ,on the public transit systems.
c) If you are cycling coming from the north of Plaisir, a reference point is highway D30 which will lead you into Plaisir and rue Pierre Curie. Be sure to turn left before N12 (do not cross N12 via Cloverleaf).
d) If you are coming from the south (use the map to locate yourself and find an acceptable route) Route D30 will take you to Plaisir.
2) START/FINISH POINT:
Gymnase des Droits de
Can be accessed from the street
Ave. des Frères Lumières, which changes name to
Avenue du 8 Mai 1945, if you are coming from the northwest.
Trusting this will be of assistance.
