An exceptional setting

The Bois des Eboulures represents an ideal setting to organise a show jumping competition, which suitably lends itself to the requirements of this equestrian event. Its 50 hectares are specially fitted out, with an exhibitor’s village, restaurants, fast-food, refreshment and welcome areas and an 8-hectare competition ground, surrounded by stands providing 3,000 seats. Special attention is paid to the floral decoration.
