Then discover these places where calm and relaxation will be privileged… Did you know that there are several playgrounds along the Marne ?

Relaxation on

The banks of the Marne

The Marne is the largest river in France! It runs right through the Champagne Gates, undulating through the heart of the vineyards and passing through many villages. Whether you’re in Jaulgonne, Château-Thierry or Charly-sur-Marne, you won’t be able to miss it, so much does it leave its mark on the landscape.

So, why not bring your picnic, a book or snowshoes to enjoy precious moments alone, with family or friends by the water.

Relaxation at

Parc des Bruyères

Excursion guaranteed at the Parc des Bruyères. Within the communal domain, an exceptional diversity of environments allows in any season to observe fauna and flora within a remarkable landscape.You can even settle and fish within this magnificent natural setting. Relaxation assured…

This is not one but two marked trails that you can walk in the Bruyères park. One will put you in the footsteps of the hoopoe, a very pretty but very rare bird, which you may be lucky enough to spot. Don’t hesitate to lend an ear, its rather characteristic song (poupou pou) will help you locate it.

The other trail, named after the Portuguese monkshood, will take you to the marsh where this large blue flower grows. If you want to see it in full bloom, you must come in late summer. Don’t end your walk without saying hello to the few sheep, cows and the donkey Tisane that graze here, quietly.

At the edge of

The pond of Boutache

Go in search of the little dragon near Boutache Pond. No, you won’t come face to face with a real dragon but you can come across many species of amphibians (newts, frogs, toads, etc) so watch carefully where you put your feet. Moreover, every year, at the end of winter, a toadstool is installed near the nearby pond of La Logette, which allows to save a great number of these amphibians. A very interesting nature outing to do with the family.
