Sadly, I do not own that train...🤪

Train times vary by day of week and time of year - when do you plan to travel?

I highly recommend the DB Navigator (German Rail), it has schedules for trains throughout Europe, it’s easy to navigate and often has connections that are not shown on other sites. Very handy.

SNCF, the French rail company doesn't release tickets for sale until two months before travel, though as others have stated above, the timetable itself changes very little. The tickets for the fast through trains (TGV - trains grand vitesse) are priced dynamically, like airfares, so popular routes and times cost more. It pays to book early, as soon as the tickets are released. From the US, you can use raileurope.com to transact in English and pay in dollars.
Should be roughly 50 US $ one way.
I thoroughly recommend travelling by train in Europe, it's a very civilised experience!

please tell me about your train from Paris to Bayonne

One quick thing to note: there are TWO St Jeans in the SW of France. St Jean Pres du Port vs St Jean de Luz. Do not get confused when you hear announcement on the train from Paris. Go to Bayonne. Then you get off and switch to a small two car tram like train for St Jean Pres du Port. Train stops in town, walk uphill to Albergues etc.

St Jean PIED DE Port, not “Pres du Port”.

We travelled by train to sjpdp from paris Montparnasse on august 1 2019. Train left at 747am and arrived at bayonne at 1152 . We then changed platforms and caught the 1159 to sjpdp. I was worried about the 7 minute changeover after a 4 hour train but in fact the first train arrived at bayonne early!!!
Ive since been told that the sjpdp train is sometimes held up until the paris bayonne rrain arrives
The train to sjpdp takes about an hour and goes through beautiful scenery . Next time i would go the same way
