What is a LPO Refuge ?
An LPO Refuge is a public or private piece of land on which the owner undertakes to protect local nature. Created in 1921 by the League for the Protection of Birds, the Refuge LPO programme is the 1st national network of ecological gardens.
By registering as an LPO refuge, we have signed a moral charter committing us to various actions in favour of the protection of nature and biodiversity, such as
- installation of nesting boxes throughout the park (currently about fifteen)
- Diversification of the garden's layouts to encourage different species of animals (birds, hedgehogs, squirrels...).
- reducing our impact on the environment by sorting our waste and installing water-saving showers.
- reduction in the use of chemical products for the household, and no use of such products for the garden
In winter you will have the pleasure of watching birds at their feeders while having breakfast in the veranda.
