In Caux, depending on the season, you may:
The outdoor skating rink is only open during cold weather, from about mid-December to mid-March. It is entirely natural, of a very large surface area, in the midst of a pine forest.
The Caux ski resort is for beginners or children. A little ski lift allows for a few runs without too much effort. The more experienced skier would find the Jaman or Rochers-de-Naye ski domains, more of a challenge and a real pleasure. They are accessible by train (Goldenpass Montreux-Rochers-de-Naye).
The tennis courts are open from about June to September. Both courts are located in the middle of the village, 5 mins by foot from the train station.
For example; the Narcissus Path is a very pretty walk in the village of Caux. A sign-posted path guides you through magnificent fields of Narcissus (May-June).
