2 jours/1 nuit

In the saddle to discover the ‘Chemins de l’Etrange’

 

Even if the official means of transport around Ellezelles is the flying broomstick, horses are also accepted. Here you will ride up and down dales and sample brews from a witches’ cauldron – all at your own risk and peril!

 

Stop for the night

Five luxury B&Bs await you at the edge of the forest in Frasnes, which is ideally located for horse rides through the hills. Your mount will also be able to take a rest there in the meadow or in a box and a car park is provided for your car and trailer. You can also sample a 3-course evening meal here (book the day before). Accommodation - €75 for two people per night.

At the Chaudron des Légendes

A delicious place to stop for a bite to eat is the Brasserie des Légendes. This is where some of the best beers of the Collines can be sampled, namely the famous Quintine or Hercule, etc. You can also go on a very interesting visit of the brewery. Don’t forget to book beforehand. And finally right next to the Brasserie is the Chaudron des Légendes that serves dishes made with some local brews – we’d love to know what you think about them. You can tether your horses here within view from the spacious terrace.
