Let's go for an excursion around the Risle valley, in Mother Nature's golden triangle. Rugles, La Vieille-Lyre and Bois-Normand-près-Lyre form an area where people like to take care of the land and its riches.
A unique biological swimming pool in Normandy
How about starting the day with an unusual swim? Here we are at Rules, small Norman town of character built on both sides of La Risle. Formerly, the inhabitants liked to cool off in this river. Today the biological swimming pool is a much more original experience! Dive into the emerald waters of this summer pool. Here, no chlorine. Water lilies, algae, reeds and peppermint filter out impurities in a natural way. The softness of this pure water on your skin will create a very pleasant sensation!
A country café for a gourmet break
Now is the time to eat. Travel ten kilometers further north to reach the village of La Vieille-Lyre. Opposite the church, the Café de Union offers a restaurant with local flavors and a grocery store with local products. Brigitte Bardot and Bourvil had their habits there during the filming of the film "Le Trou Normand" whose eponymous Auberge faces the establishment. At the counter of this establishment, terroir and conviviality are the order of the day.
Meet committed farmers
Once sated, go and meet 3 nature lovers committed to organic farming. In Bois-Normand-près-Lyre, Germain makes you discover the thousand virtues of nettle that it declines in soaps, herbal teas or gomasio. In Bois-Anzeray, Laurent reveals the essential role of the bee in the survival of species, the benefits of honey and royal jelly. Finally, at La Vieille-Lyre, Benoit, Odile and Philippe tell you about their mixed farming, which allows them to feed their pig and poultry farming healthily.
