Description :
This site is home to one of the most beautiful Genévrier stations of the region. Thanks to their recumbent (tabular) or ascending (columned) harbour, they give a particular landscape impression. More than ten species of orchid bloom from April to September at the heart of the chalky lawns, where the noises of crickets and grasshoppers give the site a Mediterranean accent. This hillside is also an exceptional site for the diversity of its mushrooms, notably the hygrocybes, small very colourful mushroom which grow on the mown lawn. The site is home to a large diversity of butterflies and finally the harmless trapdoor spider, the only one in the region: Atypus affinis. One of the original features of this site is the predominant place it holds in the life of the district: agriculture, educational support, voluntary workshops, migration...
