Walks in the forest

Over 2000 years ago, the Perche was covered in thick forest - hence it’s name: Sylva Pertica.  
Sylva means forest and Pertica refers to the tall trees that define the territory.

The forest of Bellême is located almost at the bottom of the property, 10 minutes on foot, and will therefore be an ideal starting point for a breath of fresh air or mushroom-picking in season. Do not hesitate to download the Rando Perche application on your phone for more details.

The Perche, a bit of history...

Almost at the gates of Paris, the Perche is nevertheless a territory with a strong identity, with its bocage territory and unspoiled nature. You will also appreciate its hills, mansions and themed gardens.

The history of the Perche remains closely linked, in our contemporary memory, to that of the Percheron, an emblematic horse which continues to be exported all over the world, but the roots of the Perche go back much earlier and go back to the Neolithic period.
