“Great fun and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just returned from three weeks in France and this was a great vie family activity. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the views were great. A little climbing on the way out is rewarded with a fantastic free wheel return. Great couple of hours.

“Fan-tas-tic”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

No other word for it this was great. This ride takes you over an old train track through nature. Some nice sights left and right and some good exercise on the way, it very easy going on the way back. The track has shadow on a big part but it is good to bring sunscreen for the sunny bits. The half way trip that some reviewers are talking about didn't seem available anymore. We paid 23 euro for 2 persons.

“Great afternoon out”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Four of us did the half trip in April 2013. A great couple of hours. It's uphill for the first half to the turning station and then downhill back to Chauvigny. We loved it - as the title says, it was a great afternoon out. Suggestion - take your own water. Instructions i English were excellent. Onevery minor complaint - You pay full price for the half trip ... but we will do it again with some other friends in the summer.

“Stunning Historical Town”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This town is a 'must see', the ruined mediaeval castle is stunning as is the ancient area around it. There are lots of varied shops and plenty of places to eat. Don't miss a look in the church, it is beautiful.
