DETAILS ON OUR
Travelling caravan in the Ardennes
A stay in a travelling caravan for a nature experience!
Go on a bohemian journey to the rhythm of the steps of our Ardennes draught horses. In gentle roaming, along our valleys, pastures and forests, you will discover our green landscapes. Back to the roots, nature is king here!
Each stop will be a new experience! You will discover places full of history such as the old horse post office, a preserved nature during a bivouac on the edge of the forest, or activities on the farm.
Travelling in a trailer :
We will travel between two and three hours per day (between 10 and 15 kms). We will adapt the departure time according to the weather and the planned route: generally between 9:00 and 9:30, to arrive around noon. During this tour, you will be able to participate in the preparation of the horses and in the role of teammate. When travelling, everyone goes at their own pace: sitting on the front seat, busy (perhaps dreaming!) inside, in sporty mode walking with the horses …
Our beautiful green hills have a few climbs in store for us, so we hitch up in pairs. Even though there is always one horse more committed than the other, they enjoy working together. I guide the horses in the carriage but I easily lend the guides to anyone who wants to try it!
Your stay :
Once your bivouac installed, the horses in paddock beside you, I leave you. Then you will enjoy the rest of the day to discover the surroundings, to recharge your batteries in the middle of nature, to play, to stroll, to make a campfire… everything that makes you feel good ! You have the possibility of reserving activities (visit of the farm with a snack, storytelling walk in the forest, outing with a nature guide, LandArt animation) for the sum of 30 € to be paid to the provider on the spot. Reservations required in advance.
The caravan is equipped with a bed of 130 x 200 and two benches convertible into beds of 80 x 180 each (comforters, pillows and bed linen provided). A kitchen area is set up at the back of the trailer with an awning. You have at your disposal dishes, a camping gas, a barbecue grill, jerry cans of drinking water, a cooler, two low tables and camping chairs.
A little organization:
The breakfast basket is offered as an option (family package at 15€, or 6€/person). For the other meals you can come with your groceries, our fridge is available and I want to bring you your food from day to day. The ice packs in the cooler are changed daily. Some stops offer a possibility of restoration. I can also make you a local lunch basket.
If you want to come with a fifth person, you bring a light tent and sleeping equipment. You will have to lighten the trailer on the way up and walk beside it 🙂 Clean and educated dogs are also welcome.
To make it easier for you to organize your stay, holidaymakers who come from far away can arrive the day before departure (from 16:00) and sleep in their caravan without extra charge.
I pick up and drop off holidaymakers who come by public transport at the train station or the carpooling area of Poix-Terron free of charge. Supplement of 12€ for the station of Charleville Mézières.
