La Cabane, Le près du Meinge - Éourres

High in the southern Alps, the village of Eourres (70 inhabitants) is in a particularly unspoilt part of France – while being, amazingly, off the tourist track ! Bamboul'âne offers a variety of donkey-trekking holidays to suit all tastes, from confirmed hikers to leisurely ramblers and families with small children. You can spend seven days discovering the hills and valleys, the tiny villages and the three rivers (the Jabron, the Méouge and the Céans) of our "Three Valley Circuit" (board and night accommodation in various types of lodging, or self-catering in your own tent). Or you can explore the Alpine pastures and forests for 3 days, sleeping in your tent, and probably not meeting another human being… These are only two of the available circuits. Ask us about the others. Another possibility : put up your tent in our camping site, and follow our various scenic circuits, consisting of one-, two- or three-day hikes. Bamboul'âne will reserve your donkey for the length of your stay, so that you always have the same one, and can take him (or her) when you like. For more details, write to us (by post or e-mail) or phone. English language communication is no problem.
