  • Immersion in the countryside at the foot of the city. Stroll to a 15zaine of minutes to access the farm and to the organic garden. Very nice walk with children. I know sport in this space of 450 kms through the many paths. Good success.

  • Huge green space on the outskirts of le Mans. Relatively easy access by public transport. The tramway T2 + bus 12 combination seems the faster, the bus drops you off in fact right at the entrance of the Ark. Several sites to see: the Meadow, close to the forest farm, House of water. Trail 'Remarkable trees'. Cycle track at the bottom, along the Huisne. See again and again in all seasons.
