The Languedoc is the cradle for a huge diversity of wildlife. The spring and summer wildflowers are amongst the best in Europe, with a wealth of orchids, shrubs and herbaceous plants from the Mediterranean to the Alpine.
The wide variety of local birdlife is complemented by numerous species of migrating birds.
Wild animals are shy, - all the more rewarding when spotted - but there is a myriad of insect life and wonderful butterflies.
In particular, the Montagne Noire marks a geographical and climate crossroads and is home to a plethora of orchids and wildflowers, thanks in part to its unspoilt condition - a mountain wilderness far from the harmful influence of pesticides or herbicides.
We strive to do our bit, preserving this paradise by respecting and protecting nature whilst we work, by limiting irrigation and by choosing plants carefully to avoid the need for treatment.
