le Ranch des Lacs, your lovely step in Augne

First day (4:30)

Let's start the adventure !
By leaving the farm of Donkeys, the route leads you up to the foothills of Mont-Larron. It dominates the valley of Maulde of its dark and impressive silhouette... The still hamlets inspire peace : under the sun, the old granite houses seems to be asleep. After a last moment by the river, you join Saint-Julien-le-Petit.
This evening, you'll stay in the inn of the village. >> Saint-Julien inn

Second day (4:15)

Today, you will cross woods and meadows where graze the famous cows limousines. If it tempts you, a small bathing in the lake of Martineix is completely possible. During this time, your donkey will relax in the fresh grass. In Augne, you can discover the tiny church Saint-Pierre. Finally, we wish you a beautiful stage at the Ranch des Lacs. Jules and Françoise, the owners of this charming place will know how to advise you ther specialities, in particular the famous Fondue Pelaude.


Third day (5:30)

 

The route of this third day invites you to cross big forest domains. You'll see beeches, larches, red oaks but also roe deers, foxes and other inhabitants of woods.
From hills to valleys, do not miss the Arbre aux Poules, a big oak which indicates the way to Peyrat-le-Château.
You join in the afternoon the farm of Donkeys. All good things come to an end (unless you extend your stay with an unusual night in gypsy-caravan) !
