It is set in the middle of rolling hills covered with mostly oak and chestnut trees. There is a bar-restaurant at the camping area near the local lake (plan d'eau)The oak and chestnut wooded hills provide lovely scenery and the backdrop to many outdoor activities such as horse riding, walking, cycling, painting, star gazing, fishing etc.
