On the coast of Meuse on top of a hill surrounded by forest, is a rare treasure: Feather Down Le Domaine de Cloître Saint-Christophe and its black pearls: beautiful Friesian horses. But the others can’t be forgotten: mini donkeys, dogs, cats and the forest animals. With a little luck, you’ll come across deer, especially early in the morning or around sunset.

A forest walk to la Butte de Montsec (5km), is definitely worth doing to see the beautiful 360 degree panoramic view and up to 30km away on a clear day. You can also choose to make a mountain bike trip or take a walk with the mini donkeys. Carriage rides are sometimes arranged. Experienced riders can ride through these beautiful woods and riding lessons on experienced Friesian horses are offered. It is all discussable.

There is the lake Lac de Madine 10 km away, or the Meuse for canoeing. Further afield, there are the cities of Metz or Nancy, or closer, Verdun and Bar-le-Duc, for day trips. Even the stunning13th-century Notre Dame Cathedral at Reims is reachable.

As part of the Feather Down concept, there is no electricity or WiFi in the cosy accommodations. Candles and oil lamps provide a warm light and a rustic wood stove is available for cooking. Each accommodation has quality bedding, an equipped kitchen, a toilet, a dining area and a barbecue. Dogs are allowed in this location.
