BOIS DES TOURS

In the hollow of a small valley, at the entrance of Mareuil, is located the Bois des Tours: a haven of freshness and beneficial shade!

Description

This elongated 12-hectare woodland runs through a grassy valley that is divided into two valleys bordered by rocky slopes. Chestnut and pine wood hillsides dominate the
Lay Valley, while the bottom of the valley shelters a very beautiful wetland. A stream runs through it all along its length and joins the Lay. This site, well designed for hikers, offers beautiful opportunities for easy and varied walks. Small passerines, such as the bullfinch with its pink red colours, or the discreet locust, sneaking through the grass, inhabit the area. In spring, flowers such as jasiona and ornithope adorn the
wood of a thousand colours.

At the entrance to both valleys, visitors will find parking spaces and picnic tables.

Inclined from the heights of the Mainborgère to the furrows of the Yon, Graon and Lay rivers, the Mareuil region has been one of the main wine-growing regions of the Vendée for more than a thousand years. Mareuil-sur-Lay-Dissais is the capital of the vineyard, established in nine surrounding communes.
