La Réserve Naturelle Nationale de la Plaine des Maures
1 April 2013
This is a beautiful area. Take the road from Vidauban to La Garde Freinet. Look out for a turning to the left signposted Plan de la Tour. Not long after you pass a sign for the 'Reserve' mentioned above.
We saw lots and lots of Anemone, some small wild Irises had already come out. I imagine in a couple of weeks it will be covered with Irises. In a few months it is the turn for the Cistus and Lavender Stoechas.
I've never seen these shrubs growing in such profusion as there, it will be stunning.
