Just a few kilometers from skiing Brenon does not have the same vegetation as down below : here it is already the mountains. There are no more olive groves nor vineyards, but great forests, where it is possible to partake in fabulous hikes in all seasons and far from urban civilisation.


Brenon
There are no shops in Brenon so you can't go on a shopping spree but do take advantage of the pure air and the green grass af this mountainous area. Take time to admire the great herds of sheep which represent the main liveIihood af the local inhabitants.

You will surely meet the mayor while walking about. He's very friendly and inexhaustible about the quality of his little village.
