Visit the Sarthou palm grove

The history of the palm grove begins in 1980, with the planting of some seeds from a Chinese palm tree. From seed to plant, and thanks to patient selection efforts, it didn't take that long for the palm trees to multiply to the point of forming a real forest. The Sarthou palm grove was born! The following years helped structure the project, with the installation of a banana plantation and a nursery specializing in exotic plants. Then comes the time of the labels which reward the work accomplished and underline the commitment of the place in an eco-citizen approach (organic culture, respect for water, protection of fauna and flora…). A true oasis of nature in the middle of the Gers!
