WATER

The many springs at Domaine de l'Eglantière give the area a varied, thick and well-irrigated vegetation, this you will discover as you walk through our nature paths.

The Domaine de l'Eglantières’ main feature is the river Gers, as it crosses the site here and there, its gentle, winding course brings freshness and tranquility. Here you will find trout and gudgeon playing on the water to the delight of our anglers.

LAND

The clay soil is home to century old oak, ash, wild rose, chestnut, acacia, willow and much more. Gathering berries and mushrooms, chestnuts and figs each year is a must for the connoisseur.

Among this varied vegetation it is not unusual to encounter salamanders, sheep, roe deer, squirrels, dormice, hares, hedgehogs, weasels, martens and not forgetting the age old crickets.  With a little patience, photographers will be able to take stunning photos.

They occur every year between July 17 and August 24 and tend to peak around August 9-13, and will amaze romantics and stargazers alike.
