We got the free ferry across the river. We loved the trip. We then had a picnic on the river banks before walking back over the bridge. Highly recommend this. Fantastic views.

pleasantplace to spend a sunny afternoon, as long as you like dogs, as all the local dog owners come here for "walkies"

The best part of visiting the Ile is to use the free ferry - which goes from just below the historic bridge. The Ile itself is flat and good for walking.
