The garrigue (scrubland) is an iconic landscape of our destination.
Formed by the degradation of the Mediterranean forest, the scrubland is the birthplace for biodiversity that has been able to adapt to the warm climate and summer droughts. Here, the landscapes are diverse and contrasted, forming a mosaic of colours: limestone plateaus, hills, plains. The iconic tree of this arid land is the holm oak. You’ll also find Aleppo pine trees, spiny shrubs and all sorts of plant species that are characteristic of this natural site.
At the heart of this vegetation is Mont Bouquet, and you can reach this huge limestone promontory along the hiking trails. At the peak, there’s a chapel and a magnificent view across the scrubland.
