A Sensory Journey: the Essence of the Barefoot Trail

Born in Germany and inspired by the benefits of foot reflexology, the barefoot trail is much more than just a walk. It’s an invitation to change pace, relax and explore. Each step offers you a new sensation, whether it’s the gentle tickle of pine cones, the coolness of the sand or the roughness of the pebbles. It’s an experience that reconnects you with the land, reminding you of the beauty and simplicity of nature. As you walk this trail, you discover not just different textures, but also yourself. You learn to be present, to listen to your body and to appreciate the little things in life.

Tree hug zone

Embrace Nature: connection with trees

In our barefoot trail area, we’ve created a special zone for practising sylvotherapy, an ancient and natural method of well-being. This area invites you to take a moment to immerse yourself in the soothing atmosphere of the trees, to feel their vital energy and enjoy their many benefits. Recognised for centuries, sylvotherapy harnesses the healing and soothing powers of trees.

By embracing these giants of nature or simply standing in their benevolent presence, you can experience intense relaxation and deep harmony with the natural environment. It’s a unique opportunity to recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature in its purest, most soothing form.

Enrich your walk with a captivating educational aspect thanks to our integrated educational trail. As you stroll along the trail, take the opportunity to learn more about the local flora and fauna. Our trail is dotted with information panels, each offering fascinating details about the different species of animals and plants you might see along the way.

This educational experience is designed to be both entertaining and informative, allowing visitors of all ages to learn about the natural environment in a fun way. Discover the secrets of the natural world around you and enrich your understanding of the local ecosystem while enjoying a memorable day in the great outdoors.
