20 species of orchids at the campsite
At our eco-camp in Ariège, we’ve decided to preserve the flora by planting dry orchid lawns.
Composed mainly of herbaceous perennials, dry lawns thrive on dry, sunny, nutrient-poor soil.
This environment of undeniable ecological interest is one of the last refuges of flora and fauna, threatened daily by human activities. The balance of this ecosystem is fragile, so we ask our guests to respect this sensitive area.
More than 20 orchid species can be found on our dry grasslands. For example, you can observe the Ophrys Apifera. This delicate orchid takes its name from its resemblance to the bee. This uncommon perennial species is one of the most advanced of all plants. The genus name “Ophrys”, found on several orchid species, comes from the Greek word “ophrus” meaning “eyebrow”. In the past, this perennial plant was used to dye hair and eyebrows naturally.
To discover this natural area and observe the flora, the period from April to the end of June is best. In fact, spring is the best season to enjoy flowering plants on sunny walks.
If you’re into macro photography, you’ll be able to take wonderful photos of orchids as a souvenir of your vacation at our nature campsite!
The campsite is classified as an LPO refuge
Protecting wildlife: committed to the preservation of species, our eco-campsite has a natural rhythm. To protect biodiversity, our main step was to become an LPO (Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux – League for the Protection of Birds) refuge. The sheep farming of our neighbors, producers of organic lambs, is also.
LPO refuges are the first ecological garden networks in France. Registering as an LPO reserve means that we are committed to preserving nature in our vicinity.
At the heart of our campsite in Occitanie, we’ve created a natural area of over 10.5 hectares. A veritable paradise for our bird friends!
