From the starting point of the footpaths at the roadside and at the entrance of the village (signposted 'sentier de randonnées'), go down to the bottom of the village. At the sign 'sentiers de randonnées'/'stop', go down to the right-hand bend, turn left into the small grassy path (Edf post) and down to the wash house below. Follow the stream on the right bank to the wood, cross the lookout, take the tarmac road on the right to the Noue bridge (river).
Before the bridge take the path that opens up against the hill on the right bank. Follow it to the end, crossing the beech forest. Turn right into the wood, then right again for a very steep climb through the forest. Rocks. At the top, on the rocky limestone ridges, follow the small path to the end (crossroads) and turn left for a winding descent. Climb up to a junction (open dirt track/glade), continue across and down to the tarmac lane. Cross the stone bridge to reach the village.
