With 2 or more children, the budget for a family vacation is tight. In Normandy South Eure, it is possible to go out and have fun without breaking the bank!
With a pair of binoculars, a dose of patience, and a hint of observation, it's easy to arouse children's curiosity about one of the many educational trails of the territory. Accessible freely all year round, these landscaped nature trails offer playful panels or game booklets to discover the flora and fauna of the region's wetlands or forests.
