The Ferme des Loups is many things: a place, a story, a crafts workshop, a philosophy about living with respect for nature and a local institution. You can explore these many facets through gourmet adventures and tales which invite you to set off on the traces of the she-wolf, equipped with your enchanted backpacks.
Do you know the story of the she-wolf? The story goes that there was a mysterious woman who was able to change into a she-wolf. Or maybe it was a she-wolf who was able to change into a woman? According to legend, one of her concoctions, which is still served at the Ferme des Loups, healed a young Lord. So, will you be able to get to the bottom of these mysteries? To find out, enter the world of the Ferme des Loups, an enchanted and enchanting place. At the edge of the forest, on the Trooz heights, this quadrilateral château-farm has been transformed into a fascinating zytho-bistro-naturo-tourist centre that promises incredible adventures. Here, a feast for all the senses awaits, so shhhhhh, let yourself be swept away.
