Flora of the garrigue

Let’s admire the flora in the most mediterranean part of the way to Saint Guilhem!

Breathe the way…

Eat the way…

Contemplate the way…

In this fragrant landscape, the heady perfume of honeysuckles mixes with the scents of boxwoods and blooming serviceberries.

In this tasty landscape, you can pick thyme or wild asparagus.

On these dry and rocky soils, asphodels and many other treasures grow: come and admire them!
