Paths through Mysterious Sologne 41 Chambord fr

Explore Sologne in your own way!

Whether on foot, by bike, or on horseback, your path will take you past the two châteaux of Chambord and Cheverny, through typical villages, and into themed museum-houses devoted to ponds, poaching, and deer. Sologne offers varied landscapes ranging from forests to ponds and from heathland to grassy meadows and even, on occasion, vineyards. It can be explored in countless ways.

  On foot

 Paths lead everywhere, when indicated by a local resident who knows all their secrets. In the heart of Grande Sologne or on the Chambord estate, guides will lead you to places where nature is queen and where tales and legends are the source of extraordinary stories.

  By bike

Between the Loire and Sologne there are over 321 km of bike paths, trails, and small roads conceived, designed, and signposted for cyclists. Tourists from age 7 to 77 can proceed at their own pace, wherever they like, including not only the glamorous chateaus of Chambord and Cheverny but also typical little villages, vineyards, and places for discovering local culinary
specialties.

  Saddle up! – on horseback

The Parc Equestre Fédéral at Lamotte-Beuvron is a rider’s paradise. Unique in Europe, this equestrian park is one of the five largest riding terrains in the world. But not everyone is a champion rider, so several equestrian centres remain open all year long to allow less expert visitors to discover the paths of Sologne on the back of a steed.

  In the trees

Perched in a tree-house, accommodation in Sologne can come in all sorts of varieties. You can even spend a few nights perched 7m up in the air, at the 5-star Camping des Alicourts in Pierrefitte-sur-Sauldre or at the Jardin des Lierres in Vouzon.
