We have assembled a team of well-known and recognized practitioners to give you the keys to the benefits of trees that are both our ancestors and our future. We have much to learn from them, from their wisdom, from their resilience, from their strength, from their kindness to each other, from their relationship to the other species around them.
We have bicycles at your disposal to allow you to explore the alleys and discover the different atmospheres of the forest. You can also visit the charming village of Esvres, just 5 km away, with its church and shops offering local products as well as the banks of the Indre.
