If you are in this neck of the woods during the summer period then a visit to the races on a Sunday afternoon, or on one of the numerous Fete days is well worthwhile. 180 years old this year (2017) the Hippodrome course is one...More

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.
