La Sauzaie

Charente-Maritime  >  France

Wet meadows alternating with woods and fields. An area where you can observe a lot of birds! Lots of old buildings, farms, and domestic animals.

The area of La Sauzaie has many small paths, is easy to access, and mainly flat. There are very varied habitats. Woods and damp meadows, wasteland, cultivated fields (wheat, barley, sunflower). In winter, these fields are plowed, giving way to bare land. There is also a small town center, very nice, in which it is pleasant to walk. There are also a few farms, old or not, and even a small castle nestled in the heart of the forest.


Français: Prairies humides alternant avec bois et champs, dequoi observer beaucoup d'oiseaux! Beaucoup d'anciennes batisses, de fermes, et d'animaux domestiques. Beaucoups de petits chemins, faciles d'accès, principalments plats. Il y a ici des milieux très variés! Bois et prairies humides, en friches, champs cultivés (blés, orges, tournesol,...). En hiver, ces champs sont labourés, laissant place à une terre nue. Il y a aussi un petit centre bourg, très sympatique, dans lequel il est agréable de se promener. Il y a aussi quelques fermes, anciennes ou non, et même un petit chateau niché au coeur de la forêt.



You can explore by bike, by car, or on foot. All the paths are easy to access, but sometimes in poor condition or muddy during rainy weather.
