HIKING IN THE gâtine
Pleasant and delightful walks to the discovery of a generous nature that invites you to "go further" the way.
It is also a more sustained walking on trails that hug the landscape gâtinais to meet many testimonies of the past that mark the territory.
This is both a recreational discovery and a form of physical exercise.
It is a sometimes surprising meeting of the inhabitants, characters who know the rich heritage and know how you live the roots of the region and their products.
This is what we tell hikers intoxicated by an overflow of the eyes and lungs.
In Gâtine, hiking trails are accessible to everyone, even if they are sometimes harsh and physically demanding that remains a pleasure.
We have almost all practiced; the differences in height are bearable and distances are manageable by shortcuts identified on the cards.
Over a course of twenty 6-20 kms of the surrounding towns, some of which lead to the GR 364. Many detailed and explanatory cards available in the house for the enjoyment of walkers.
One thing is sure, the gâtinais grove offers a choice for walkers who will wear what their sole !!!
BIKE SINCE gâtine ON ROADS OF TWO SEVRES AND Vendée
Leisure bicycle, cycling or mountain biking: all tastes are in the nature of the region.
Our landscape and heritage are of infinite variety and they redouble charming when cycling discovered.
With family or friends, cycling is becoming a great way to discover who in addition to combine fitness and health, is economical and environmentally friendly.
Cycling, accessible to all, is widely practiced in our regions and many of the meetings (cycling closer ...).
We found this summer we were still more on the quiet circuits, a little away from the car, where the natural heritage is rich and the people close to you live what he know best: their country and their land.
And fortunately, opportunities abound to ride the bicycle. Judge for yourself:
We practiced several circuits on the Gâtine, the Marais Poitevin, the Vendée inside medieval treasures. Over thirty routes and loops have been proposed to pedal with confidence. After the Marais Poitevin where the flat country is easy to roll, we've come a new link from the Thouet Valley to the Vendée routes through the cycle route (gâtine sources, the Beugnon, Chapel Thireuil the Busseau St Hilaire of Voust), there is a little sportier.
The terrain is bumpy, the variations are larger but after each turn, turning a wooded hedge, a new landscape is offered to you and your efforts are rewarded.
In Gâtine and in countries at 40/70 kms, the landscapes are very different and the many circuits are preserved and you do meet our neighbors in several European countries who come ride with us.
Through this means of silent and non polluting transportation, you access the inaccessible while preserving the environment!
So ALL SEAT on routes selected for their landscaped interest in a natural setting ... It IS SO GOOD If ESCAPE !!!
HORSE .... OR PONY ...

An educational approach to environmental education and the rural world.
Land of the horse, whether it be the workhorse or rises:
- Discovery farm
- Riding lessons, the career work
- Equestrian tourism, walks on nature trails.
We got to know all these professionals, horse lovers who live and transmit the pleasure of the close relationship between man and animal. They are five in an area of 5 to 15 kms.
We discovered the workhorse of the universe, learned its use and aboriginal crafts practiced with him. We treated practiced Breton grooming trait that weighs nearly 900 kg «a docile monster." We worked at the forge and shoeing a horse before work.
What happiness then practice the hitch on marked paths and to better know the agricultural work of yesteryear.
Too unknown and very rewarding for the world culture and history.
Very complementary career in labor, classes for all and at all levels.
Finally, the great joy of the ride, the contact with the horse, pony and nature.
Hiking in the forest, in the Gâtine, the Marais Poitevin, the Bocage.
There is no better way to enjoy our rural landscapes, practice green tourism and meet deer, wild boar, coon, rabbits, squirrels and many birds.
