THE PAVILLON BLEU FLOATS ABOVE THE BEACH
The Domaine de Saint-Cyr and its beach, in partnership with the Municipality of Beaumont Saint-Cyr, were awarded the Pavillon Bleu 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.
In particular, it is responsible for environmental education, the general environment, water management and waste management.
The Domaine de Saint-Cyr beach is the only one in the department to have this label.
Samples and checks are carried out regularly by the ARS Regional Health Agency, in the summer season. So you can bathe with peace of mind!
A study of the bottom of the lake called bathymetry was carried out in order to determine the depth of the different areas of the lake. The area dedicated to supervised swimming does not exceed 1.50 m in depth.
A DAILY ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
Because it is essential to preserve the environment and the biodiversity of the Domaine de Saint-Cyr, our teams have been involved for several years in an environmental approach that is dear to them. From the opening of the Park, 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.
Practices such as energy saving (solar panels, water recovery), sorting of waste, use of organic products, ordering supplies made of recycled materials (sheets of paper, street furniture in the park: tables, benches , bins, etc. are all actions carried out systematically by our employees. Everything is done to respect this commitment and maintain a quality of service.
Fishing is practiced on the lake, according to the principle of No-kill (the fish is returned to the water).
We also encourage our visitors to sort waste because it is important to associate you with our values in order to be able to enjoy this exceptional nature that surrounds us for a long time.
The 300 hectare domain of the Parc de Saint-Cyr plays host to an often unsuspected fauna and flora.
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 run by the LPO, has been set up on the site and aims to evolve soon in Regional Nature Reserve. The reserve has some rare species: 213 species of birds, 32 species of dragonflies, 7 species of amphibians, 277 varieties for vascular plants and 11 natural habitats are listed there. You can observe the great crested grebe, the common tern, the white-tailed lapwing, or the mute swan, but also several species of dragonflies, the marbled newt, the bee orchid or the guinea fowl fritillarium.
