Bocage farmland

Discover the banks of the River Cher

By Benjamin Payet, Nature Guide


Through hedges and meadows, the River Cher stretches over the plain of the Natural Sensitive Space of Noirlac’s Bocage Farmland. Not normally accessible, a guide will lead you along the meanders of the Cher on a discovery tour of the river’s history, biodiversity and geology. Take your time on this 5 km walk along its banks.
