A Unique Ecosystem

The Marais de Bonnefont covers more than 42 hectares and is home to a wide variety of plant and animal species. The site is particularly well known for its wetlands, which play a crucial role in regulating water quality and preserving natural habitats. Marshes are essential for the conservation of many species, including migratory birds, which find an ideal refuge here.

Remarkable flora and fauna

A stroll through the marsh will give you the chance to observe an impressive variety of rare and protected plants, such as wild orchids. Botany enthusiasts will be enchanted by the wealth of plant life in this environment.

As far as wildlife is concerned, the Marais de Bonnefont is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Here you can observe rare bird species such as grey herons, black storks and kingfishers. Wetlands also attract a multitude of insects, amphibians and small mammals, contributing to a balanced and diverse ecosystem.

Activities for All

The reserve offers several marked hiking trails, perfect for walks with family and friends. The routes are designed to be accessible to all, allowing you to discover the treasures of the marsh at your own pace. Information panels are scattered along the trails to inform you about the ecological specificities of the site and ongoing conservation efforts.
