Walk After dinner (2,3m or 3,1miles)

A not too long walk named after what it is meant for that can be done by almost everybody. The short version takes about 45 minutes and the extended version is roughly one hour of easy walking. 

The extended version is often used in the opposite direction for running or jogging and is also mentioned as such further down on this page.

Walk Saint Georges and La Sauzette (9,5 miles)

The longest walk we prepared for you is the "Saint Georges and La Sauzette" which is 9,5 miles long. After a good 3 miles you reach the former excavation (for china clay) "Saint Georges" near Le Grand Pineau which can be visited in July and August. The explanations are only in french at the moment. 

The terrain is quite varied (meadows, woodland, heathland and vineyards) and just after La Sauzette part of the track is not even recognized by Google Maps.

As there is an increasing demand for long walks we have adapted on of the cycling tours for hikers. This hike will take you through a bit more woods and heathland than the cycling tour does. With a length of 15 miles you will be busy for roughly 5 hours. Almost 4 miles of the hike is on the old Charlemagne track just on the other side of Montguyon.

A nice short round to digest your dinner. It's only half an hour so well feasable for almost everybody.

The first part is like "South through the vines" only you turn off a little earlier and come back via the Narolles stables.

Jogging track (3,1miles)

Since more and more visitors of camping La Motte like jogging and running we have made a description of a 5km (3,1miles) track on paved but quiet roads. The terrain is and remains slightly sloping, but due to the direction of the track there is only one fairly long descent (after 1km) and a few short ascents.
