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.
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.
