D952 - C2
Chasteuil is located 2.5 km from the D952 road, it is reached by going up a small mountain road, the C2, not accessible to caravans. The small road is narrow and winding and you sometimes have to park to pass a car. Honk your horn on blind turns if you wish. The car driving up the road has priority
We recommend that you arrive before dark. Since we live in the countryside, a flashlight can come in handy.
Chasteuil is located 2.5 km from the D952 road, by a small steep mountain road, the C2. The C2 is narrow, winding and although tarmac, it is often covered with gravel. Most bikers don't have a problem on this small road. But the big cylinders sometimes have trouble.
