Guiding walks, hiking

Sologne, largely preserved, offers the ability to magically be in the nature close to large cities. With 2,000 km of local roads, it is open to the Green Tourism, and the six communes in our territory have many of them.

Our area at the gates of the Sologne, has many paths open to walkers all year round. Accessible to families and casual walkers, they will reveal a wild and preserved nature.
