Petit-Val (route No.861)

“Sornetan and Les Ecorcheresses are two wonderful villages, very different but both situated among wild nature. We had the option to set off from two places, so we chose Sornetan. This is a small hamlet perched on the hill, with little more than a hundred inhabitants. On the ride we had the chance to discover an undulating route that was very beautiful but not always easy on a bike. I really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place, surrounded by a particularly green landscape.”
