What's around in Hainaut and Avesnois ?

In the Avesnois, come and enjoy all the different things going on at the Val Joly tourist resort : walking, cycling and riding, swimming and well-being, fishing, sailing, pedal boats, mini-golf, archery, high ropes courses up in the trees and so much more. There really is something for all ages and interests!

As for the region’s festivals, be sure not to miss the Fête de la Flamiche et du Maroilles in Maroilles on the 12th  of August, an opportunity to sample the local leek tarts and Maroilles cheese while enjoying all the activities and entertainment laid on in the village!

For those of you in search of a spot of culture, Bavay’s Roman Forum is staging its own series of summer events: the Nuit des Etoiles (Night of the stars) on the 3rd  of August, family Olympics every Sunday afternoon and a temporary exhibition, “Bulles d’Antiquité”, on the Roman world as seen in picture books ..

And finally, you can also visit the Lace and Embroidery Museum in Caudry , in particular its temporary exhibition “Jardin d'Ombre, Jardin de lumière” (Garden of shade, Garden of light).

And all the time you’re enjoying your stay in the region, don’t miss out on my favourite local confectionery, Bêtises de Cambrai!
