To start your day, we suggest a combination of physical activity and discovery by visiting some of the rustic valley villages, such as Ménilles, Croisy-sur-Eure or Breuilpont. These can be visited either by kayak or on foot by following one of our top-rated trails.
After getting your energy back, let yourself be transported to the vintage atmosphere of the Pacy-sur-Eure tourist station and the rail tracks along the old line linking Orléans to Rouen. Closed to travellers in 1950, the line was brought back to life in 1996 thanks to the tourist train.
Climb aboard to appreciate the unique panoramas over the valley, shaped by the winding flow of the River Eure, or simply enjoy a meal (depending on the schedule).
The Eure Valley Railway
From Pacy-sur-Eure to Breuilpont or Cocherel, let yourself be transported into the vintage atmosphere of the railways and trains of yesteryear. As soon as you enter the station, discover the old-fashioned ticket offices, as well as the scales and goods yard. And let’s not forget the machines and cars waiting for you on the platforms.
Because sometimes it’s nice to remember how things used to be, we suggest you complete this “vintage” afternoon with a visit to the municipal museum of Bueil.
Clearly underestimated, this carefully designed museum is dedicated to the work of the famous French director, Jean Delannoy, and the history of cinema.
Jean Delannoy Museum of Cinema and Photography
Cameras, projectors, decorative elements, but also photographs, posters, cameras … and 226 copies of films! Hidden in a former hangar, visit this impressive collection with other museum enthusiasts and step back into a time before the digital age.
