Of the star of the perche in the ouche country

It is never said enough that what we can do best for those who love us, is to be happy.

The circuits of Saturday 5 August

Without leaving the regional park of the Perche and its national forests, you will make a significant incursion into the department of Eure-et-Loire. Those with most endurance will press on to Fontaine-Simon and may be tempted by a nautical teleski session on the lake…



The road routes


After reaching Soligny and the Grande Trappe abbey, where you can admire the new pond and its nautical installations, you will cross the forest of the Perche and La Trappe and take the 18th century roundabout, l’Etoile Du Perche where 8 roads converge: make sure you follow the right signpost! You will pass through Bresolettes and its protected site open to visitors. From Lignerolles to Tourouvre, you can visit three three museums. Then you will leave the Perche for the Ouche country whose history was forged by the river crossing it: the Risle. You will enjoy relaxing places: in Aube, where you can visit the museums of the Comtesse de Ségur and the Grosse Forge, in Saint-Evroult-Notre-Dame-du-Bois, beside the pond and near the ruins of the abbey, or in Saint-Sulpice-sur-Risle, to discover the Bohin factory, still in operation, which has perpetuated the pin and needle tradition in France for over 180 years.
