Our favorite outings near the Domaine

For nature lovers, photographers, amateur or experienced ornithologists: the Bird Festival offers two unique activities close to the Domaine du Val!

Located 2.5 km from the Grand-Laviers ornithological reserve, the residents of the Domaine du Val will have the opportunity to participate in two activities close to our place of residence during the Festival.

Two meetings with the birds of the reserve have been scheduled: one at dawn and one at dusk.
