  • You can get almost every weekend to the Ark of nature and discover a different corner every time. This large area is well laid out, can be done on foot, running or cycling. There are many activities: visit of the House of the water or the forest, discovery of the farm or the Botanical Garden of the House of the prairie, travel health, disc golf, bicycle rental... And events are organized regularly: night of the stars, the bread Festival...

  • Share a moment with friends or family to the discovery of the terroir of the region off the beaten path. A ballad for all in a beautiful setting. Do enjoy your Entourage. Snack bar on site and a lot of slots to arise and rest. Also very nice to release its energy through the many paths that allow to run outdoors.
