VALLON DE VERSANNES

Presentation

The Vallon de Versannes is a 3 hectare basin partly owned by the Loire Atlantique departmental council as part of sensitive natural areas. It is currently under development and remains of course unbuildable.
Perched on a hillside on the seafront, the Versannes valley has been reclaimed by spontaneous vegetation since the abandonment of agricultural practices in this sector. All the evolutionary phases of the coastal landscape meet on the site; from the initial stage of lawns, to the mesophilic hay meadow, passing through a pre-forest stage of thickets, to mixed afforestation with holm and pedunculate oaks. There is the usual floristic procession of these habitats. However, it should be noted that there are a few species that are rare in the department and very rare nationally, such as sea fennel, prickly quackgrass or scorodony scophular. In grassland areas, the buffoon orchid brings a pinkish hue in spring, while the autumn spiranthus marks the end of summer. At the end of the site, from the cliff overlooking the beaches of Crève-cœur and La Boutinardière, you can observe the typical landscape of the jade coast with its fisheries ... and its numerous fishermen on foot during high tides. This point of view offers the possibility of observing seaside birds such as the herring gull or its cousin the brown gull, the black-headed gull or the common tern.
