It gives way to a preserved and exceptional landscape to be discovered and, above all, learned about, the better to appreciate and respect it.
The flora and fauna are diverse: butterflies, dragonflies, frogs, toads and bats live side by side with marsh ferns.

For families, there are walking trails to discover this exceptional environment.
In autumn, it's also the ideal place for mushroom picking in the woods.
The "Auberge des Seiglières" restaurant lets you enjoy the mountain air on the terrace while dining after a walk.

The Seiglières marsh is part of the Espace Naturel Sensible (ENS) des Seiglières along with the marais chauds, with specific regulations (see details in the municipal by-law available to download).
- Prohibitions: fishing, swimming, skating in winter, vehicle traffic, garbage dumping, fires, plant picking, peat and topsoil extraction, camping, bivouacs and caravanning.
- Recommendations: paths reserved for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, respect for amphibians (particularly from March 15 to May 15 during migration and breeding periods) and dogs on leashes.
