Unwind on the Cartierheide

In the Kempen region, you will find the Cartierheide nature reserve, southwest of Eersel. It is a peaceful walking route through woods, past heathland and large bodies of water. Shepherds and smallholders used to set the tone here. Hawkers walked along the sandy paths with their baskets of merchandise on their backs. It is an area full of history, where Napoleon left his mark. Did you know that the woods were the territory of smugglers?
