A looping route starting from Montfaucon

"We fancied a change from the Alps, so we booked a week at the REKA holiday village in Montfaucon. It was in February and fortunately there was plenty of snow. We knew that it wasn't a certainty at that altitude (1,000 m) but everything was perfect there. The first day after we arrived, we hired from snowshoes from the village reception desk and set off for a walk with our children. We took the route, which is ideal for families. Needless to say, every break was an excuse for a snowball fight. The children still remember it."
