The orchard is offering many activities: self-picking, a tractor ride, make-up for children, a mini farm, picnic area, a terrace and a playground. During our visit, mid-August, some of the activities were not available yet (the season was just about to begin).

We started with the apple picking. The lady at the reception was very helpful and explained to us where and how to find the apples which were ready to be picked.

We then continued to feed the animals at the mini-farm: goats, peacocks, pigs, rabbits, chickens, birds and more.

Last but not least, the playground. The kids just loved it.

On the same road of this orchard, there are at least 4 more apple orchards (verger), waiting to be discovered.
