THE DOMANIAL FOREST OF THE PAYS DE MONTS
Between Fromentine and Sion on the Ocean (25 km), more than 2,200 hectares of forests
You can put on your hiking shoes or hop on your bike and set off on the cycle paths in the forest or forest trails lined with maritime pines, holm oaks, maples or locust trees and other species.
This is the opportunity to observe exceptionally rich flora and fauna during a family nature walk or a guided walk accompanied by a guide.
To see, to do : the squirrel trail ideal for children (fun trail), the Belvedere (view of the sea), the heronry (natural space populated by gray herons and little egrets)…
Did you know ?
The Pays de Monts national forest was planted at the end of the 19th century under the Second Empire to fix the dunes and make the surrounding marshes cultivable by drying them.
