Sports and fun


From Brénazet, you can do some nice walks, and hiking maps are available. For other hikes, it is necessary to go by car a few kilometres to where the hike will start.

Treasure hunt

A nature experience for the whole family. A sports activity with emphasis on the 5 senses. The little fun tasks are a challenge for the children and suddenly they are happy to walk with you! The departure is from Brénazet and the map can be found at the campsite. There is a short version and a long version and participation is free.

Family outing with ponies

A guided walk with 2 or 3 ponies from Brénazet.
First we groom the ponies, then saddle them and make a little test ride on the yard. Off we go for a beautiful walk. Parents will walk and hold the pony. We’ll stop for half an hour in a picnic area near a small river. It is a long walk of 7 to 8 km. Good shoes and preferably long pants, because we also pass through the forest.

These are our ponies:
Deva (Welsh 2013, 1m10),
Elvie (2013, 1m15)
Barbara (Small Shetland 2007, 90 cm)
Sometimes Rizar (Arab 2000, 1m47)

The price is 50€ for a walk with 2 ponies.



Pony riding

Once a week, on Monday mornings, children from the age of 3 can ride ponies in the padock behind the log cabin. We’ll groom the ponies together and, with the help of the parents and older children, the children can ride for about half an hour. A maximum of 8 children can register. Costs: 7 € 50 per child. The children below 3 can also have a small tour.

Children from the age of 11, who have the experience of riding, can help Mariken with the ponies. The responsibility remains with the parents. Pony riding independently in high season is only possible for very experienced riders. Walking with ponies, cuddling and brushing is possible almost every day!


Bicycles can be rented at Brénazet: 8 mountain bikes of different sizes, as well as child seats. Mountain bike 15 € per day, 7 € 50 for half a day.

Tip: By bike, go to the lake of Lapeyrouse (12 km) lake, with a terrace for a snack. You could also leave around 11am from Brénazet to arrive at noon in Louroux de Bouble, and enjoy lunch at the restaurant Le Gourmand. Ask for more ideas for cycling at Brénazet!

Hatha Yoga and yoga for children

Tree climbing

Accro-Sioule offers a beautiful park with a treetop course. Challenge, excitement and pleasure guaranteed!

What our guests say…

Un moment de grâce chez Mariken et Ron. Dans ce hâvre de paix, tout a une âme : les constructions, en particulier le chalet, les arbres, les sourires, les pizzas. Le plus embêtant dans tout ça, c’est quand on se rend compte qu’il faut déjà partir, quitter ce petit paradis… avec une idée en tête : trouver une occasion pour revenir! Un grand merci à Mariken et toute sa famille !
