The forest is managed under PEFC certifications for sustainable forest management.
The cottage is a great start point for a walk, trek, or even just a saunter through the woods. It's blocked off by a grove of young American oak trees.

As a result of support from the REINFFORCE project (REsource INfrastructures for monitoring, adapting and protecting European Atlantic FORests under Changing climatE), an arboretum was established on 2 ha of land under the management of Pierroton (Bordeaux). REINFFORCE helps with land protection across Atlantic coast, from Scotland to the Portuguese coast.
