Treat yourself to a family walk between shrubbery and ponds
Are you looking for a family walk? Come and spend an hour in the woods of Saint Paul! Listen to the wind playing between the branches of the beech, oak and fir trees. Walk alongside calm ponds and enjoy the gentle murmur of the streams. And try to catch a glimpse of the black woodpeckers that have taken up residence in this peaceful environment.

3 points of interest

  • Pond

    the Les Landes pond

    The first stage of your walk, the Etang des Landes extends nonchalantly alongside a majestic alley of venerable beech trees. Private.
  • Pond

    Etang de Mon Dilu

    This small pond lost in the middle of the woods is called "Mon Dilu". Meaning, in Occitan, "My Monday", this expression refers to Pierre Leonetout's day of rest. A pastry cook in Limoges, and a native of Les Ribières, he came each Monday to fish in his pond to relax. Today, it is still a perfect place to rest for a moment and enjoy the beauties of nature, on the bench or in the shelter of the fisherman's hut... and whatever the day of the week !
