  • A beautiful place for all the family. In winter the road is not always deneigee, so caution! Two large car parks. You can do a circuit d 1 hour with children on foot or on snowshoes with skis available tracks, track sleds for children, with the possibility of drinking a hot drink or a pancake chocolate House (a test! The boss is Breton) a magical place or regularly you can hear Pierre landslides in the mountain safely. Ideal place for lovers of photography, day or night at the full moon. In the off-season, you can access a closed part in winter for security reasons. You can make a nice hike with a beautiful landscape Cf photo
