So pleased to have found this activity, the kids loved it as much as we did. Its a fun activity that involves all children of all ages. Such a nice way to see the countryside and enjoy the outdoors.

With 2 fit friends in tow, the 4 of us packed a picnic and set off. The route we were recommended was to start at Confolens (as opposed to Roumaziere) purely because it is uphill on the way ~ so down hill on the way...More
