      Local wild life is ever present, in particular on the slopes of Mont-de-Grange thanks to the work done by the local hunt who have turned it into a reserve and make a point of protecting the animals. Who has not dreamed of watching chamois dashing from rock to rock? But you need to be up early to catch them by surprise!
      Qualified guides propose frequently guided walks in the heart of the reserve for that aim.
