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.
