La Tourbière de Landemarais

The Landemarais peat bog in Parigné is one of Brittany's three sphagnum bogs. It is now classified as being of national interest and is of great importance for scientists. The vegetation is outstanding here and the area is popular with nesting, wintering or migratory birds. In addition to its many species of wild animal, it now boasts three mule-breeding horses from the Poitou area.  26 hectares of flora and vegetation characteristic of a wet acidic habitat provide ideal conditions for the development of a rich and varied fauna (insects, birds, Poitou mules) at Maison de la Tourbiere, 42 rue de la Mairie, Parigné.
