Tèrra Aventura Geocaching made in Nouvelle-Aquitaine

When you’re on holidays, keeping your children busy and happy without overspending isn’t always simple! So when my wife and I heard of the Terra Aventura treasure hunt in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, we were delighted!

We had never tried geocaching and I was a bit weary at the idea of dealing with GPS coordinates… Luckily enough, we found out that there is a free smartphone application (available in English)

Once I had downloaded the app on my phone, we were ready to go! There are over 300 caches in the entire Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, and I was quite happy to see there were several right by our holiday residence!

Obviously, my children were ecstatic at being allowed to manage my Smartphone, and the forest quest we selected was perfect for the hot weather on this particular day! Step by step, the app guided us to each different point of interest and riddle. Each of our answers brought us closer to the treasure! My family and I had come to the area several times in the past few years but never suspected there were such gorgeous back roads! The region’s heritage is incredibly rich and quite fascinating !

Last riddle… and the GPS coordinates turn to green! Yay! We answered each riddle correctly! Suddenly, the treasure’s location appears on the map! Everyone has great fun searching for the Terra Aventura container and suddenly… « Over here! I found it ! »

In the container, there are collectible badges called « Poï’z » (Points Of Interest). We each take one and proudly pin it on our t-shirts ! « When can we do another cache, Mum ? »… Victory ! An outdoor activity that costs absolutely nothing, and that the entire family enjoys !

Jardin du Château de Montréal

Towering above Crempse valley, a few kilometres from Mussidan and the A89, Montréal is a château from the first Renaissance (1535), built on an old fortress. The 13th and 14th century gardens, designed in the early 20th century with input from of Achille Duchêne, a renowned landscape designer in the Belle Epoque are spread on the ramparts of Château Montréal, with some parts still remaining today.

Enclosed with walls covered in white and cream roses and white clematises, the lower, Italian-style, garden is dotted with topiaries. It contrasts with the upper, French-style, garden, where the flowerbeds and boxwood benches highlight the outline of the ramparts, with two terraces, one with roses, nepetas and blue sage, the other with red and yellow dahlias. Outside, Montréal park has a star-shaped arbour. Partly destroyed by the storm in 1999, it had been replanted for your walks.

Moulin de La Veyssière

A water mill dating back to the 16th century, the Moulin de la Veyssière is the last working oil mill in the Vern Valley at Neuvic sur l'Isle. Jacques Elias bought the mill in 1857 and for 165 years, the history, passion and know-how have been passed down from generation to generation. We produce traditional oils and flours with character: walnut, hazelnut, almond and peanut. A real living heritage, a place for living and sharing, a visit to the mill will take you on a journey through history and gastronomy. Enhance your discovery of the mill with a museum area and an educational orchard. Enjoy a gourmet meal in our shaded picnic area. At the end of your visit, you'll be offered a tasting session. Discover our gourmet shop in the mill's old bakery.
