Country walkways, ancient paths and little roads criss-crossing the hills, all offer a lot of lovely country roaming. There are more than 700 kilometres of signposted walks, over hills, down valleys and through oak, chestnut and white beech forests that will put your leg muscles to the test.

As the paths pass through villages and hamlets, cover dry open prairies or slither along river banks, they make great exploring on foot, on horseback or by bike. 13 different walking maps are available from all tourist offices.
