The nature park

The Forêt d’Orient Regional Nature Park stretches from the edge of the Paris region to the south of Champagne.

Between water and forest, this park offers a palette of varied landscapes that inspired, among others, the painter Auguste Renoir. This land of large lakes and ponds, dominated by tall oak trees, will appeal to nature lovers and birdwatchers alike, as the park is home to thousands of birds. The Forêt d’Orient Regional Nature Park and the surrounding area offer many possibilities for hiking, as a couple or as a family, alone or with a guide, by bike, on foot, on horseback…
