From Paris, take the RER train to Chatou Roissy and follow the signs to l'Ile de Chatou. Tickets are available at the gate. But don't plan on getting back to Paris via taxi. Rarely will a driver take you to Paris, unless he is paid to wait while you shop. And you don't want to rush through aisle after aisle of Chatou's diverse treasures! The train is the best option, unless you bring your own car.
