Villecerf perfectly lends itself to country walks along the quiet local lanes and trails in the area. Cycling and horse riding are also an excellent way to enjoy the scenery, or take a picnic and enjoy a scenic drive. Close to your Villecerf holiday home is the landmark tower known as the Tour de La Montagne de Trin which is easy to walk to and has some good views of the area.
