A very chilled out experience. The scenery is stunning. Bring a picnic and go for a nice hike or walk wherever you decide to get off.
A highlight of our trip to Spain and Southern France, this was a magical trip into the Pyrennes. There are rumors that it may be too expensive to maintain these trains for too much longer. Don't wait, you might not have a chance to experience this in a year or two. Also recommend the early morning train if you are... 更多
We did a return trip from Villefranche to Bourge Madame and could not fault it. A definite must for lovers of trains, nature and a very good day out! Well operated and excellent value. A bonus was the fact that Bourge Madame was on the frontier with Spain! We had lunch at a bar immediately on the Spain side of... 更多
One way journey is enough to enjoy fully the scenery traveling by this small train. We came back with it as well but it was a bit too much. And coming back by normal train is cheaper too. There are some very cheap buses in the region, check the site bus à 1€.
Le Train Jaune runs from Villefranche - Vernet-les-Bains to Latour de Carol, near the Spanish town of Puigcerda. The most spectacular part of the route is the section from the start at Villefranche, up as far as the small town and ski-resort area of Odeillo – Font-Romeu. Clinging the sides of the deep valley of the Tet, the line winds... 更多
What a super day out, it cost 39 euros for two adults no charge for our dog. Having read a review on trip advisor suggesting if you want to sit in one of the open carriages wait by the barrier, we did just that and managed to get seats facing the front of the train. There is about seating for... 更多
The journey from Villefranche up to Mont Louis is through some amazing scenery. Approx 75 minutes in length, Mont Louis is an ancient walled town well worth the 10 minute walk.We caught the train back 1 hour later. Thoroughly recommend
Having read about the little train, it was a must for our trip in the area. We stayed overnight in town and walked to the station. Since it was off-season no problem getting tickets. We elected to take the open car. We went to the end of the line and back again. The truly jaw-dropping part of the trip is... 更多
Took the train from Villefranche to Mont Louis. Fantastic trip and very reasonable at €16.20 each return. Climbed up into the Pyrenees at a leisurely pace over mountain rivers and spectacular valleys. Crosses a really interesting railway suspension bridge and also a pretty viaduct on its way. Seems to have quite a number of stops and finishes quite close to... 更多
We drove an hour and a half to get to the station by 9:30, in order to catch the 9:58 train. By bad luck a coach was just disgorging its passengers as we arrived and of course they pipped us to the post in getting into the station. However I suspect they'd booked in advance and didn't need to queue... 更多
