#plenty of projects

Since they started at the Verger, owners Thérèse and Mario have been collecting ideas and planning to expand their enchanting site.

Their hard work, passion and vision have shaped the experience of Verger Champêtre – Gîte & compagnie today: huge petting zoos scattered along trails, orchards where you can pick your own fruit, an interpretation centre about life on the farm, Christmas trees, playgrounds, vegetable gardens, activities of all kinds, plus a huge variety of homemade products and an opportunity to take a stroll with some of the animals.

New projects are always being dreamed up, and we hope you’ll come visit us soon!
