The Bastidon Pine Grove

Natural wonder in La Londe-les-Maures
  • To the west of Miramar beach in La Londe les Maures, the Bastidon pine forest extends over 19 hectares of maritime pines. An exceptionally fragile preserved area, on the seaside under the protection of the Conservatoire du Littoral.

  • Upstream of the coastal path and downstream of farmland, this natural area of 19 ha, made up mainly of pine nuts, is an exceptional preserved site between the Pansard campsite and the Baie des Isles residences.

    Its name testifies to its former connection with the Bastidon wine estate then owned by Mr Henry Potez, a great pioneer of the aeronautics industry.

    Property of the Conservatoire du littoral, classified and protected since 1990, it is managed and maintained by the commune....
    Upstream of the coastal path and downstream of farmland, this natural area of 19 ha, made up mainly of pine nuts, is an exceptional preserved site between the Pansard campsite and the Baie des Isles residences.

    Its name testifies to its former connection with the Bastidon wine estate then owned by Mr Henry Potez, a great pioneer of the aeronautics industry.

    Property of the Conservatoire du littoral, classified and protected since 1990, it is managed and maintained by the commune.
    Since 2017, thinning by cutting down pine trees has allowed young oaks to grow and the herbaceous and shrubby stratum to recover.

    Regeneration is also ensured by the installation of ganivelles.
    From September to June, the site is maintained thanks to eco-grazing by donkeys, which encourages the diversification of vegetation by eliminating certain invasive grasses and contributes to naturally fertilizing the soil.

    Adjacent to the pine forest, a reedbed and wet meadows complete the range of habitats and enrich the landscape diversity of this place.
