The “Domaine de Fondjouan” is a beautiful space surrounded by forest, which has hosted the festival for many years.
From Paris: The closest airports are just outside of Paris, either Charles de Gaulle, Orly or Beauvais. From there you can rent a car or take a train to Blois, which is the closest train station to the site. There is a direct train (approx. 2 hours travel time) from Charles de Gaulle airport from terminal 2E to Blois. There are also trains that leave from train stations in Paris: Paris Austerlitz and Paris Montparnasse. Please note if you are traveling with a lot of luggage, there are not many direct trains (there are some from Paris Austerlitz).
To get from the airport to any train station in Paris, see Paris’ public transport website https://www.ratp.fr/en for itineraries.

From the train station in Blois to the site: The nearest train station is Gare de Blois-Chambord, which is about a half an hour drive from Domaine de Fondjouan. From the Blois train station, you will need to take a Festival shuttle, taxi or bus to the site.
Festival shuttle: there will be Festival shuttles going from the Blois train station to Fondjouan on July 25, at 2pm and 4pm and from Fondjouan to Blois on August 2nd. The shuttle to the Festival is free and there’s no need to reserve. Upon arriving at the station, look out for signs pointing to the Yoga Festival shuttle pick-up location. Return shuttles will run on the morning August 2nd, and you must reserve your place at the festival’s Information Booth. The cost of the return shuttle is €10/person.
Taxis: There is a taxi stand at the Blois train station. Usually many yogis will arrive at the train station at the same time, so it is possible to take a group taxi (it is generally easy to spot fellow festival-goers – look for turbans!) It takes 30-40 minutes to get to the festival site and will cost approx. €80-150 (prices vary depending on the day of the week and the time of day). Please only use authorized, official taxis for transportation to the festival.
Bus: The line 4 bus runs from the train station in Blois to the town of Mur-de-Sologne about 3 times a day. You would still need transport from there to the site, unless you are traveling light (about a 30-minute walk). The bus schedule is here: https://www.azalys-blois.fr/107-Trouver-mon-trajet.html.
Carpooling: If you plan to come by car, we encourage you to plan to ride share, if you have space for any other yogis to travel with you.
