Biodiversity abounds here. You’ll encounter the increasingly rare species typical of agricultural plains, such as hares, partridges, lapwings and Montagu’s Harriers, as well as forest species like black woodpeckers, roe deer and tawny owls. Don’t shudder, but we’ve even crossed paths with a wolf in 2021!
This is also a region rich in history(s). Marked by the ancient County of Moha, the region has preserved many impressive castles. Of course, there’s the ancient fortress of Moha, whose remains perched on a romantic rocky outcrop have been brought back to life over the past few years with medieval festivals, fun trails and guided tours. In Fallais, the ancient castle still surrounded by its moat is a must-see, while villages such as Fumal, Hosdent, Lavoir and the hamlets of Envoz, Marsinne and Ferrières offer remarkable architectural ensembles. Many of these sites, long dormant, now welcome visitors for enriching and invigorating experiences! A brewery or vineyards whose activities are housed in castles, a mill that has rediscovered the taste for flour and good artisan bread, another old mill where willow is braided are just some of the surprising discoveries the region offers.
