We stayed two nights in the area of La Plaine-des-Palmistes in the lovely La Ferme du Pommeau guest house. Even that the host’s did not spoke english, they were really nice, and we had a great breakfast and dinner at this place.
On our way to the Forest Bélouve the road had many parking opportunities in order to start a hike. Hikes are well-marked and information panels show hiking opportunities.
Name: Foret de Belouve
Length: ~15 km
Time: ~ 5 hours
Where to park: Forest Bélouve
Tip: on the hike you can go to the Trou de Fer – sadly due to rainy weather we were not able to see it. At the Gite de Bélouve you can stop for a coffee on the way back.
Personal opinion: Very nice, easy walk which looked like it was build by Ewoks from Star Wars 😉
