Entertainment/events: photo album

In medium range mountains, the air is pure, bracing and invigorating, which means you need to be aware of cooler air at 700 metres. Don’t forget to bring a warm jacket or a sweater. Also bring binoculars to watch the mouflons (wild sheep) on the Caroux mountain.

A few other tips: also bring with you bathroom carpets, bed linens and bath towels unless you want to rent them on site. But there are no dish towels for rent. If you arrive when the shops are closed, don’t forget toilet paper, kitchen rolls, dishwasher tablets, bin liners. You will find no cleaning products and no sponge or cloth in your cottage. However, each cottage is equipped with a broom, a vacuum cleaner, a bucket, a long-handled scrubbing brush, a floorcloth. A folding drying rack is also available.
