Walking

Opening hours

NB: The office will be closed from 22 December until 7 January. The café and shop will be closed all weekends until the end of Januray. The domain remains open to hikers.

1 March – 31 August: 8 am – 8 pm
1 September – 29 February: 8 am – 6 pm

Important:

  • From October to January the estate is closed completely on Thursdays because of the official hunts to control the populations of wild boar and red deer.
  • From April to October the site is regularly privatised on Saturdays. It may therefore not be possible to picnic or stay immediately in front of the buildings.
  • Groups are requested to contact us in advance. For any organised walks or activities you are asked to contact us in advance for permission and specific conditions.

The café and shop are open at weekends and there are public toilets. There are picnic areas in front of the buildings.

Please note: the farm at Courmettes is independent of the Domain. To visit the shepherds (lamb meat and wool, sheep dogs), please contact Didier and Valentine. To visit the goat farmers, contact Bruno.
