La Forêt de la Double Nature Reserves / Parks in Montpon Ménestérol

  • English
    • La Forêt de la Double is a large forest area of 50,000 hectares, between the rivers La Dronne and l'Isle. It is an old forest, which has retained a very wild side. The only notable human intervention takes place during the 19th century, where it will almost disappear due to overexploitation. Having become too marshy, it was saved by the drainage and sanitation of the marshes, carried out by the monks of the Abbey of Échourgnac. The forest then returns to its original place. Thanks to the many ponds and bodies of water that it contains and to the very varied species of trees that compose it, it attracts a very interesting fauna. Rare and protected species have taken refuge there, in particular the Cistude turtle and many birds. To discover it, many interpretation trails have been set up. You can hike there on its forest paths. For family fun, the Etang de la Jemaye offers all kinds of leisure activities.
