A refreshing walk
The sun is shining, it’s hot. Why not cool down by a lake? Such as the Étang des 3 Fontaines in Saint-Jans-Cappel. At the foot of the Mont Noir, this site has 7 trout fishing lagoons in a naturally wooded and calm setting. Some are even available to privatise for you and your friends or family! Or the Étang des 4 fils Aymon in Méteren. Perfect for a family picnic by the water and the local fauna and flora. This site has several departure points for hiking trails, such as towards the Monts de Flandre, the Mont des Cats, or even towards the Mont Noir.
The softness and gentleness of the flowing water will lead you to a moment of relaxation in the water and poetry garden in Zuytpeene. Whether it be waterfalls, water paths or ponds, water is omnipresent in the garden. 3.5 hectares in the Flemish countryside at the foot of Mont Cassel, taking you inside a water-based poetic and artistic creation.
A walk through History
You’ve taken the path that leads towards Mont Noir, and further ahead, you’ll see the Villa Marguerite Yourcenar and its park. Surrounded by bluebells, you can walk on 5 km of footpaths, allowing you to discover the heart of the Monts de Flandre mountain range.
The lungs of Nieppe’s town centre, the château park is a bucolic setting, a 1 km-walk on foot through woodlands for a beautiful family walk. Go past Nieppe’s fishing pond to round up your short walk.
