A relaxing hike at 766 m of altitude in the middle of the oaks, particularly in summer if you are looking for some shade and freshness ! 

In the 17th century this was the reserve of the reigning lord - and it was forbidden to let animals graze here - for the best wood in the kingdom was logged to from these forests to build the royal fleet under Colbert...

The woods are criss-crossed by paths so you can shorten the walk easily with young children.

Nearby the hippodrome a nice area for picnic.
