.....has anyone done this? Is it too far and did it leave enough time?

Did you go by train or on a coach?

I would hate to miss out on a visit if it is doable (will be in Paris for a few days) - but i'm bad at getting my head around distances.

You can get the train from Montparnasse station it takes about 1 hour. Be warned some of these local SNCF trains can make UK trains look like the orient express others are okay. Usually these kind of tickets are quite well priced.

Yes - done it, lots of time to see plenty and have lunch.
There used to be an Englishman who did tours and gave a talk - he was good iirc
