Presentation of: FORET DE BARBETORTE

The Barbetorte Forest represents the southern Vendée. It is located in an area composed of cultivated fields and faces the floodplains and the communal. Its parcel is very fragmented and the forest is partly departmental and partly private property. It takes its name from Alain Ier, known as Barbe Torte (with a braided beard), the first Duke of Brittany, considered as the founder of historic Brittany.

The Barbetorte forest represents a beautiful woodland of 85 hectares in total, located in the middle of the Luçon plain. This site is known for its ecological richness and in particular its herpetological interest, reptiles and amphibians are indeed particularly present. There are the magnificent red frog but also the famous pharmacists' snake, the Aesculapius snake and a number of orvets.

These woodlands are typical of draining and drying limestone soils and also include vast oak groves and large bridle paths, allowing walkers to discover this amazing site.

The black peach, also known as the marsh peach peach and the willow-leafed inula, whose flower reminds us of the dandelion, dress this forest area in their varied and deep colours.
