  • Calves, cows, pigs, poultry, vegetable and more are to be discovered in the Ark of Nature with your family like friends or during a walk nearby walk and bike. The space is didactic vocation and many signs will help the city better understand the farm and environmental issues. Several events are held during the year on topics of season and gather a large crowd. In the summer, a walk in 'Patache' (heavy vehicle several horse-drawn) will delight young and old throughout the forest roads traveled.

  • 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.
