Preview of your weekend in the Morvan

Day 1 - Morning

An e-scooter, a lake and the Maison du Parc visitor centre

I want to ride my… e-scooter

After a handling lesson to assess your level and determine which route to take, off you'll go on your e-scooter! From the village of Alligny-en-Morvan you'll head for Chamboux lake, following the Ternin river as it winds through this valley of Morvan amid pastures grazed by beautiful cattle of the Charolais breed.

Between woodland and pastures, you'll reach the banks of the 75-hectare lake, one of the smallest of the Morvan's 6 great lakes. You'll be accompanied by a guide on your adventure along the narrow trails which were once used to travel between the hamlets.

Did you know? Chamboux lake is the Morvan's most recentl dam lake, built in 1985 to supply drinking water to the local villages!

A break for lunch at the Bistrot du Parc

Visit the bistro for a lunch prepared in-house from local, seasonal ingredients, most of which are organic.

Make the most of your delicious break, inside or out on the terrace, or pop in for an afternoon tea, herbal tea or hot chocolate with homemade biscuits and cakes.

Day 1 - Afternoon

A waterfall, the remains of two mills and a trout

The Saut de Gouloux waterfall

The Saut de Gouloux waterfall tumbles from a height of 10 metres into the pool below where you'll see the ruins of two old watermills. Follow the brown trout waymarkers for a short walk between the Caillot and Cure waterfalls which are both a short distance from the first. 

To round off this first day, head for Ouroux-en-Morvan where Coline and Stéphane invite you to stay at the Gîte de la Loutière located right in the centre of the village.

Day 2 - Morning

An ancient gallic site, a stylised horse and a walk to visit Bibracte

Take a trip 2,000 years back in time when you visit the Musée de Bibracte, a key site of the Morvan and Burgundy. Located on Mont Beuvray in the south of the Morvan Park, this ancient Aedui capital was once inhabited by up to 10,000 people. It is also an outstandindg natural site that you can explore on foot or on horseback.

Did you know? The emblem of the Morvan Park, a stylised horse, comes from a coin that was found during excavations at Bibracte.
