Covering an immense 219,400 hectares, the Lorraine Regional Nature Park extends across three of Lorraine's departments: Meuse, Meurthe-et-Moselle and Moselle. Its varied countryside, alternating between forests, lakes and agricultural plateaus, is best explored by rambling at your leisure along its innumerable marked trails.
Surrounded by greenery, the delightful Lake Madine is a much-loved place to relax, bathe, sail or canoe.
Not far away is Montsec hill, where a monument stands to commemorate the attacks led by the American army in 1918. From this site there is a superb panoramic view of Lake Madine and the Côtes de Meuse!
You can continue to explore the area around Lake Madine with a visit to the medieval village of Hattonchâtel and its castle. Those interested in heritage can go to Saint-Mihiel, a little town famous for its Benedictine Library and sculpture of the entombment of Christ at its Church of St. Stephen.
