green hole

A green artery linking Lake Auron to the city centre, this long alley of plane trees with its green meadows offers you a large shaded area, perfect during the summer heat. A playground will occupy the little ones during your break before taking a walk in the historic center. 

Lac d'Auron is accessible via the Trouée Verte: 1,5 kilometers of paths dedicated to gentle roaming allow you to travel in the shade of the trees in complete safety.
