At an altitude of 1,000 meters in the Vercors, the Peuil peat bog overlooks the 60-hectare commune of Claix. On the cliffside, 400 species of flowers thrive in the cool soil, including Grande Astrance and Drosera, an insectivorous plant. The fauna is highly varied, and if you're discreet, you may catch a glimpse of the peony bullfinch, the agile frog, the palmate newt or the depressed dragonfly.
