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.
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.

The price is 12€50 per pony.
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. Walking with ponies, cuddling and brushing is possible almost every day!

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 !
