Description

This circular walk passes through half-standard plantations as well as traditional, naturally managed standard orchards that provide a habitat for many different species including the common redstart and sand lizard.

The white trees are a feast for the eyes (and the camera lens) when spring arrives. During the harvest season, walkers are allowed to pick and eat the cherries directly from the trees marked in blue. Those who like them can buy more straight from the producer on the wayside.
