A FAMILY DAY
9 am: Leave Lyon
Arrive in Saint-Martin-en-Haut at around 9.45 am and start your day by paying a visit to the Tourist Office, where you can borrow up to 4 electrically-assisted bicycles free of charge (pre-booking is recommended, trailers for children are also available, open from Tuesday to Sunday included). And set off along one of the bicycle trails to Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise.
By this time you should be feeling peckish, so you can head for the Haute-Rivoire Deer Park for a picnic.
Then you can immerse yourself in the Middle Ages at "Salva Terra", a medieval park and village which is open from the end of March to early November. From July to September, you can make the most of your outing and get lost in the Labyland corn maze! Once you've found the exit, make a short detour via one of the many farms along the way, to end your day on a gentle note.
6 pm: Back to Lyon
