Very clean and with lot of shops.
Very convenient better than CDG for getting out of Paris and half the cost if one takes a taxi. Expedient security line. But on the way home even though we had followed the signs to "taxi" once outdoors we were told by people who appeared to be in charge that the taxis were on strike and our only choice was to take a private car at twice the cost. We refused went back inside and eventually another person came over and told us those men were lying and escorted us farther to the left where taxis were starting to come into the terminal. Since SNCF workers are indeed striking now we certainly wondered if the taxi cabbies had joined in. We got back to Paris in a taxi at the normal price in the end.
