In this place that is called the “domaine of Lampy”, Claude Anne BOUDET are pleased to welcome you. Inside their large mansion, they will great you kindly and naturally.
Outside the house, you will be able to discover a large park planted with very old and large trees as well as various plants.Inside the house you will find out some kind of an ancient charming feeling and the luxury of large spaces at your entire disposal.
This place is also the house of an open minded family who knows how to share the magic of a one of a kind environment mixed with a rich History .
- The “Cathare countryland” (the land where the Christians “Cathares” hided while they were hunted by the inquisition of the Catholic Church).
- The Black Mountain, important place of the French Résistence during World War 2.
- Hiking and biking. Swimming & sunshine. Visiting the local “Arboretum” is a must because you can discover the “Fables de Jean de la Fontaine” ( for French fluent speaking people though)
The park and gardens of Lampy have been neglected for over 40 years.
Though, today, with the precious help of the French national forest office (ONF) and the European rural development program (PDZR-1993), it has been restored, finding again its paths. (Sequoiadendrons, giants Thujas, Cypresses of Lawson, Virginia tulip tree, Chilian Araucaria ….)
Some new species have been planted recently: (Gingko bilobas, Negundo maple trees, Cedars of the Himalayan and Lebanon, bohemian olive trees, liquidambar from Louisiana…)
The Arboretum is open to the public all year long, (commented and guided visit possible on demand).
You can also enjoy of "the route of Lafontaine" which is a special kind of course where you are going for a walk along the different paths, on which you can take a rest, and read the Fables(in French though), and admire magnificent outdoor paintings realised by Madeleine Neyret. Philosophy teacher Anne Boudet will comment the texts
