About Peyrat-de-Bellac Forest

Located in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine in central France, the Peyrat-de-Bellac forest stands out for its rich biodiversity. This land, which we acquired in May 2023, is home to a unique ecosystem of preserved meadows and ancient hedgerows. These wet meadows are managed sustainably, encouraging their specific flora. As crucial structural elements, the hedgerows are carefully maintained to support the local fauna. The aim is to afforest only a part of the property, thus preserving an open environment. Today, the forest is dominated by sessile oaks. The Peyrat-de-Bellac forest has another unique feature: it is home to Galium debile, an endangered species in the Limousin region. This rare plant thrives on the banks of streams on unwooded plots of land.
