This dynamic village, surrounding a Neo-Gothic church built in 1870, is well-known for the strawberries grown here. From June onwards, many producers open their doors to the public and allow you to sample some very tasty varieties of strawberries.
As you enter the village, you will be impressed by the homes of the Sept-Fontaine and De St Just families, as well as the Ferme des Templiers, all examples of well-preserved architecture which illustrate the past life of the Ardres area.
The «sentier de la vieille motte», a well-marked path, is a good place for a walk and plenty of fresh air. Stay at a local guest-house or camp-site for a calm and authentic visit to the district.
Only two kilometers from the village, you will find the hamlet called Yeuse, which is well worth visiting. A chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes was built at the end of the 19th century, in gratitude for a prayer being answered. You will find out more when you visit it, and it is open every day from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. While you are there, visit the local traditional inn, which serves local produce, when you want a pause for a snack: note that this is also the starting point for donkey rides
Don’t forget to go to the place called «Le val», a beautiful and calm hilly area.
