Presentation

Take to the mountain-bike trails to visit the extraordinary Boulieu lake and the forest of bald cypresses. The site is even more exceptional when seen its flamboyant autumn colours.
Byrne lake is the ideal place to unwind and observe nature, whatever the time of year!

Boulieu lake: the itinerary ends at the lakeside where a forest of Louisana bald cypresses creates a surrealistic atmosphere that is very soothing, especially if you find yourself here in the evening.

These trees are said to have been planted by Hilaire de Chardonnet, the creator of artificial silk, who allegedly brought them home from one of his many travels. Hilaire de Chardonnet was a great inventor who lived at Château de Vernay in the late 19th century.

Cascade de la Roche: A waterfall surrounded by beautiful bald cypresses that make this special site particularly colourful.
