Okay, we’re not sure if this is for the grown-ups or the kids most, but in the summer there are steam train runs through beautiful countryside. Take a picnic and remember the forgotten pleasure of traveling! Check timetables with the Eymoutiers Tourist Office first (we can do this for you).
The train runs from different stations, but the nearest is 15 minutes from the Chateau.
We love the velorail! It is a must for young train lovers and even enjoyed by teenagers. It is set in pretty countryside on an old rail line. The idea is that you cycle a contraption with seats for four on the rail line. You whiz along and cross points (children love helping to do this) and then a snack at the other end before you head back. There are time slots, so you should book (we’ll do this for you).
There is a very nice Plan d’eau (beach and swimming spot with picnic facilities) nearby and also an acrobois (tree top adventure), so a day at the velorail could end up being the most exhausting but fun day out for kids and parents alike!
