Around the campsite

The surroundings of La Mathonière are perfect for walks, hikes and sport cycling tours. Along the campsite two walking trials from the village Louroux-Bourbonnais are indicated. In the old town of Herisson the ruins of a castle can be visited for free. A nice walking trail here starts at the church and walks up to Chateloy where you have beautiful views over the region.

On the way from La Mathonière to Herrisson you will pass “Saut du Loup”. A small walk down leads you to the gorges of the river Aumance, an ideal place for a picnic.

In the surroundings villages of La Mathonière markets, brocantes and medieval summer festivals are held. There are also plenty of swim opportunities in the surroundings of la Mathonière. Plan d’eau of Vieure is one of them and is only a 10-minute drive away. Another opportunity is the recreational lake of the Forest of Troncais 15 minutes away. Swimming, canoeing, rowing and pedal boating can be done here.
