I think that the trains are on strike in France. Or not?
Many are. Eurostar is still running, but it looks like chaos is the order of the day once you get to Paris.
Now I understand why you've moved to a quiet, rural village!
Eurostar was the least of our worries noisewise. And yes, the noise in London versus the quiet in Preuilly was a big reason we found it harder and harder to return to London and eventually moved.
