We went as a group of four and booked in advanced through the website which was easy enough (I speak limited French so much simpler than calling!) The ride is good fun, I'd imagine it's quite hard work if you're not used to prolonged exercise! It's very noisy so don't expect to be able to have a conversation enroute! It's... 更多
This is a really good attraction and great value for money! It took us about 2 hours to do the full distance and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The member of staff who took our booking and helped on the day was really helpful and spoke great English which really helped us understand what we were doing on the tracks.
You have to pedal and get up a sweat! Great fun. Lasts about 2 hours - 16km in all. The way out is quite uphill but that means it is downhill on the way back. They can pop a child seat on for the younger kids. You need to book - there was a good fluent English chap to sort... 更多
The start of this trip was promising with a nice view from the bridge and of the old town, but after this it's only peddling through some thick greenery which stops the travellers from seeing the French countryside. An exciting trip for the children.

The chap running the rail is great, very accommodating ( we cancelled once without a problem, they then cancelled due to the weather, third... 更多
Located close to the town of Chauvigny, which is worth a visit itself, there are many Velorail across France this one being just under 9 Kms each way. Basically peddle cart that runs on an existing old railway track - now disused you'll be glad to know! Very friendly and informative staff, in English which was helpful. We did book... 更多
This is a great outdoor activity for families or friends. You're given a small rail car that is powered by cycling. The car has 5 seats, 2 of which have pedals. The car follows 8,7 km of and old railroad, and runs through the forest and right next to historic Chauvigny. You have spectacular views when crossing the several bridges... 更多
Visited at end of May with our two young children aged 6 & 7. Their legs weren't quite long enough to reach the pedals when sitting on the bikes, but determined to have a go, they still managed to do it (stood up) and thoroughly enjoyed it!! To explain, there are 2 actual cycles and 3 seats so as long... 更多
We had ridden on the Confolens velorail earlier in the year, enjoyed it immensely, and were back in the Vienne... 更多
