Beautiful nature

Vienne with its beautiful nature, to discover and rediscover!

The Heath from Pinail

The only National Nature Reserve in Vienne. His 3000 ponds (originated from old mine pits for the extraction of millstone) and paths invite you to come and see the flora and fauna.

Discover the many rare species like the gentian, the Spiranthes, the hen harrier and the Dartford warbler.

The forest of Moulière, with an area of 4171 hectares, derives its name from the mining industry (mill stones (grit)) which has continued for centuries.

Situated between the valleys of Vienne and Clain, this forest has an exceptionally privileged position and this is why it is called "green lungs of Vienne". It is still devoid of any recreational equipment, except for La Maison de la Forêt, the information and events center.

Just a few kilometres out of Poitiers in the Boivre Valley, the Norée Caves are the only natural caves in La Vienne. Spectacular lighting created by local artists illuminates the caves. Strange stalagmites which look like a chabichou - the local goat's cheese! The 'Macaroni Hall' will enchant young and old alike.
