Take time to investigate the countryside of the Morvan National Park on foot, by car or cycle/mountain bike.The newly opened Morvan Mountain biking Trail passes the bottom of the garden. The area of the Morvan is heavily wooded with streams and rivers running into its many lakes, each of which is designated for a recreational activity. A fishing licence can be obtained locally for the grade 1 rivers and lakes, when in season. The lake overlooked by the apartment is specifically designated for this activity.The "Lac de Settons" provides all those activities for water sports enthusiasts and bathers.Try the canoe/kayaking centre at St Pére (the European championships were held nearby), the tree climbing activity centre (try the black route!) or one of several horse trekking centres. The Morvan is noted for its wildlife and the garden is regularly visited by a wide range of birds.There are many fine chateau and fortified villages to be viewed each telling their own story,notably Bazoches, Montreal and Noyers;There is even a replica castle under construction at Guédelon. Art galleries abound and there are many concerts to be experienced;Dijon is well worth a visit.
