  Activities     Kids  

We welcome children at La Mortaise. First of all we have a pool where they can enjoy themselves on a hot day. The garden is very spacious and offers lots of possibilities to play. For instance the trampoline, also good for a work-out. Several toys are at their disposal: balls, tractor, a basketball pole, swings and slide. For elder children we have a tree cabin to hide in and play Robin Hood.

Children also have their special table d'hotes. They can eat before the adults and have their own menu. During the schoolholidays we often have more children staying with us so they can all eat together.

Below a selection of daytrips suited for children.

Nearby Autun
In July and August a tourist train runs through Autun. So you can visit all the sights without tiring the little ones. Autun also offers a couple of good crèperies where you can eat nice and thin pancakes.
Waterfun

The Lake of Settons makes another good daytrip for children. It's good for a swim: the water is in good condition and there are two small beaches with guardians to watch over the safety. For children that can swim properly you can rent a pedalboat with a slide.

When it is less warm, you can also go on a boattrip. Children are allowed the conduct the ship and play the captain.

   

Knights and princesses

The castle of Sully welcomes chilren. During a guided tour they have their private search for a riddle that once solved is rewarded with a small gift. During the schoolbreaks there are special thematic tours at Easter, Halloween and in summertime.

Steamtrains

In Bligny-sur-Ouche an old traintrack is still in use. Volunteers keep an antic train running and you can make a ride through the valley of the Ouche. In Le Creusot you'll find another old train and you can visit the Parc des Combes, a park with children's attractions as a tiny roller coaster, small boats and summer slides.

Climbing

At Bibracte children of 6 years and older can participate in a ‘Tree Climbing’ training. In a morning or afternoon session you're initiated in this sport, well secured with ropes and cables. In a wider area you will find a variety of exciting outdoor sports as climbing, wildwatercanoeing, horseriding or crosscars.

Cuddling

For those who love to caress animals a visit to the lamafarm in Mesvres, just behing Autun, is a good option. You can made a walk with these soft coated animals and are told everything about their lifestyle and how wool is made of their fleece.
