Family activities in Entre-Deux

Exploring Entre-Deux as a family is a memorable experience, offering the perfect combination of outdoor adventure, cultural discovery and relaxation. Here are a few must-do activities to share with your family during your visit to l’Entre-Deux:

1. Cycling or walking

Take advantage of the picturesque paths in Entre-Deux for a family outing on foot or by bike. The well-maintained paths offer stunning scenery and a tranquil atmosphere, perfect for a family outing. You can choose from routes to suit all levels, and even hire bikes on site if you need to.

2. Picnic in the Bras Long park

The Parc du Bras Long is an ideal spot for a family picnic. With its barbecue areas, picnic tables and children’s play areas, the park offers a friendly setting in which to enjoy a relaxing moment outdoors. Children can play on the playgrounds while parents relax and admire the view of the surrounding mountains.

3. Visit to the equestrian farm

The Ferme Equestre de l’Entre-Deux offers family-friendly activities such as pony rides and riding lessons for children. It’s a great opportunity to discover the beauty of the surrounding countryside while sharing a fun and educational activity as a family.

4. Discovering Creole heritage

Discover the cultural heritage of Entre-Deux by visiting the Maison du Patrimoine and exploring the picturesque streets of the village. Children will be fascinated by the traditional architecture of the Creole houses and can learn more about the history and culture of the region through interactive exhibitions.

5. Excursion to the waterfalls

The surrounding waterfalls, such as Cascade Jacqueline and Cascade du Bras Long, provide a spectacular natural backdrop for a family outing. Plan a short hike to reach these sites and take the opportunity to cool off in the natural pools. Don’t forget to bring swimming costumes and towels for an even more enjoyable experience.

6. Craft workshops

Take part in craft workshops in the village of Entre-Deux, where you can discover traditional techniques for making local products such as handmade soap and carved wooden objects. Children will love getting their hands dirty and leaving with their own creations as a souvenir of their visit. The vavang’art is an association based in the centre of the village of Entre-Deux. This collective, which recently became a cooperative society, is extremely prolific and throughout the year organises activities to play, meet and forge links between residents… or not, as the case may be. The activities on offer are diverse and varied, and follow a pre-established programme. This third place is really the ideal place to meet people, have a drink, eat and chat… it will bring together young and old alike. An example to follow, really!

Whether exploring the lush natural surroundings, discovering the cultural heritage or taking part in fun activities, Entre-Deux offers a multitude of options for unforgettable family moments. Make the most of every moment spent together and create precious memories that will stay with you for a long time.

7. Take the hiking trails to the Sassa basin

One activity that’s easy to do with children is to take one of the many hiking trails that leave from the centre of Entre-Deux. The path to the Bassin Sassa is probably the best-known and easiest to do with your children. Accessible from the town centre (50m from the tourist office) and 1km long, it’s the perfect walk to take with your little ones. The slightly longer Dassy trail is also a must-do for the whole family.
