  • Not to be missed: the pretty hamlet of Charbottins, at the end of the lake.

  • Saint-Pierre-de-Varennes, a town located northeast of Le Creusot, covers more than 2,300 hectares and has many small hamlets. Brandon Castle, on the hill, and its pond are to be discovered in this loop where you will cross soothing places and endowed with pretty seasonal colors. The lucky ones will have the chance to meet the gray heron on the banks of the pond.
