Hide and seek?!

During your stay, try to observe the Percnopter Vulture, the Red Helleborine and the Zygaena rhadamanthus.

Keep an eye out!

The Percoptere Vulture is a bird of prey emblematic of the Luberon. Migratory, spending the bad season in Africa, you might be lucky to see it in spring and in summer.

The Red Helleborine is not red! This rather common orchid is visible in My in the light and cool afforestation of holms or downy oaks.

The Zygaena rhadamanthus is a rather rare butterfly, enfeoffed to a host plant (plant where the eggs are layed and used for feeding the caterpillars afterwards): the 5 leaved-dorycnie. this butterfly is protected by law.
