Right in the middle of town this 2 km course is beautifully maintained right opposite the chateau. Worth a walk around. The grandstand had great views over the start and finish line.

The French love their horse racing so it is a cheap day out for all the family. No rip-off pricing and you get close to the action. Take a picnic, what the horses parade and start right next to you.

Was here last year, although very interesting there were 3 horses " put down " almost in front of us. Was a shame for the children and difficult to explain. Not sure I will go again. The Horse Stables nearby were more fun.

Went to the races here and had a wonderful day out. Even backed a 50-1 winner! Mixture of flat, hurdle and steeplechase races at a wonderfully picturesque course. Tote type betting only. Super for a family as you can enjoy the atmosphere without being interested in horses. Plenty to eat and drink, or you can take your own "pique-nique", and... More
