COUNTRY WALKS

A network of truly exceptional paths and walkways criss-crosses the whole area and is something that all residents are duly proud as it enables them and visitors alike to appreciate the natural beauty of the countryside and its patchwork of fields, woods and picturesque villages.
Walking is so popular in Chaumont-Gistoux that a group of local people have formed, the Paths and Trails Group and who regularly organise guided walks( 4-5 walks per month)and produce a number of brochures that describe some 30 country walks and trails. This group can be contacted either by email, aW5mb3NAZ3JvdXBlc2VudGllcnMuYmU= or by phone on 010/84.03.17.

CONCERTS

"The Folestival" is a concept born from the realisation that music concerts should not be exclusively targeted towards the young. The "Folestival" is thus targeted at the parents of their concert-going children and offers top-notch cover music played through a concert quality sound system. Of course the concert is complemented by a top quality infrastructure and the availability of good food and drink.

This concert takes place in Longueville, historically on the last Saturday in July and regularly attracts over 2.000 people.
