Fresh air in the morning and vacation are a golden couple. The water mill provides just that.

Walking in the Champagne-Ardennes

There are five great walking routes (with lengths of 2, 5, 7, 15 and 16 km) immediately accessible from the mill. You’ll find maps for them inside the gîte

In addition there is a long, beautiful walk just below Sedan characterized by an alteration between rich forests, pastures, quaint villages, and abandoned monasteries. Why not start your day at the beautiful Elan, walking through vast forests, along streams, and around lakes.

Cycling in the Tour of Tourteron

The Grand Prix of Tourteron is held every year on the first Saturday in August. The route of this great race goes from Tourteron by Lametz (RD 28) to La Sabotterie (RD28C) via l’Anerie (RD28C) and back to Tourteron. There are 12 laps of 9.4 kilometers, for a total of 112.8km. It’s a very festive affair with music, excellent food (especially BBQ) and a real party atmosphere.
