Châteaudun | L'émotion grandeur Nature

Le Val de Conie


 Châteaudun is located on various tourist itineraries: the Loire châteaux, the picturesque Loir Valley, the Wheat Road. More locally, it is the starting point for walks that we invite you to follow.

A tributary of the Loir on its left bank, the Conie is a river of natural and wild appearance. This very diversified stretch of water offers a wide area of marshland covered with reeds, known locally as "la rouche".

MARBOUE : Village on the banks of the Loir (swimming pool/beach in summer), rambling routes.

Listed site Marshes in the hamlet of DHEURY, commune of Donnemain Saint-Mamès: observatory, wash-house with reed roof.
In the commune of Donnemain, it is possible to see areas that have become rare in Eure-and-Loir: reed-beds. Reeds were gathered in these damp areas, as shown by the roofs of houses in the hamlet of Dheury. They contain a high level of biodiversity, such as the marsh fern or rare birds such as the Marsh Harrier.
