Situated in the Loire chteau country's heart on the Loire River, the small town of Gien has many charming sights. The Gien Rail Station can be reached from Paris by trains departing the Gare de Lyon station. Gien Rail Station also offers services to Nevers, Moulins, Vichy and Clermont Ferrand.
The little town itself was restored after the severe destruction of WW II, resulting in an atmospheric ensemble of riverside quays. Its bridge over the Loire dates from the 16th century and its charming houses surround the gorgeous 15th century chateau. Conveniently located within a short distance from the Rail station is the two-star rated Inter Hotel Axotel Gien.
