ENVIRONMENT AND BIODIVERSITY
The Domaine de Saint-Cyr and its beach, in partnership with the municipality of Beaumont Saint-Cyr, were awarded the Pavillon Bleu a for the first time in 2020. Renewed in 2021, then in 2022, this international, environmental and tourist label guarantees excellent quality of bathing water in seaside resorts and lakes.
From the opening of the Domaine, the choice was made not to allow motorized boats (apart from rescue boats) in order to preserve the tranquility of visitors but also that of nature and the animal and plant species that occupy the site. Fishing is practiced on the lake according to the principle of No-kill (the fish is returned to the water).
Practices such as energy savings (solar panels, water recovery), sorting of waste, use of organic products are all actions carried out systematically by our employees.
The 300-hectare Domaine is home to often unexpected flora and fauna.
Since 1981, the Park has been subject to regular ornithological monitoring by the LPO Poitou-Charentes.
Since 2009, a 40 ha ornithological reserve, managed and animated by the LPO, has been set up on the site and aims to soon evolve into a Regional Nature Reserve.
