We have been recommended the train trip to Pontrieux for the landscapes and the originality to travel with a steam train. The truth is that the landscapes are limited to the forest. On the way to Pontrieux the train stops in La Maison du Littoral...More

Biggest waste of money ever - 50 euros for 4 adults. Track stupidly squeaky the whole journey so much so you wanted to close the door. My 3 year old son who loves trains hated it as it was so noisy. Absolutely would not recommend

First of all it is essential to rebook. Secondly on the day of our booking the steam train was not running. Thirdly we were squashed together on wooden seats, and unless one has a window seat, one can't see much. Fourthly there was a mid...More
