This family walk lets you explore the Roquedols Estate with its château, dovecote and forest. The site's charm will work on both young and old!

The walk starts with a very gentle slope in the forest, to the pigeon-loft. It then follows a former béal (irrigation channel) to reach the château and gardens.
