From the rock above the Amel we follow the course of the river through lush meadows in Bellevaux. This shady trail seems to be leading us to the very end of the world.

Beyond the tiny hamlets of Tiou and Warche, a gigantic rock, which rises up out of the valley of the Amel, makes it impossible to proceed any further. From the tip of the Warche rock there is a fascinating view out over the landscape. We go back to Tiou and enter the Warche valley via a secret path. It takes us straight to a small bridge with a view of the river. At the top, at the foot of the fens, the Warche still sounds like a wild mountain stream.

Here, by contrast, it rests peacefully in its bed and nestles against the meadow bank. In Cligneval the landscape turns into a mosaic of pastureland and hedgerows. Beneath the parching midday sun the wayside trees and hedges afford some welcome shelter. A trail with hairpin bends leads down towards Bellevaux. Not far now to the brewery that promises the best beer in the region.

Author’s recommendation

Parking in the centre of the village "The Brasserie de Bellevaux" draws its water from a spring in the village: this purity allows it to develop the aromas of the four beers brewed here, which are neither filtered nor pasteurised.
