WHAT IS A PARC NA­TUREL ET RE­GIONAL?

French Property News - - Location -

Haut-langue­doc is one of 48 re­gional nat­u­ral parks spread across France. These ru­ral ar­eas are na­tion­ally recog­nised for their out­stam­nd­ing lo­cal her­itage and land­scape, but also for their fragility. They are also lived in. The towns and vil­lages are among the parks’ stake­hold­ers (along with re­gional, de­part­men­tal and gov­ern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tions), and they com­mit to sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment plans, op­er­at­ing within a Park Char­ter.

This spirit of co­op­er­a­tion is dif­fer­ent from other pro­tected ar­eas in France, such as the na­tional parks, which are gov­erned by reg­u­la­tions. A na­tional park can­not also be a re­gional nat­u­ral park, and vice-versa, al­though na­ture re­serves can ex­ist within a park.

Through con­tact with na­ture, the parks raise en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness among their in­hab­i­tants and en­cour­age vis­i­tors to learn more about the re­gion through ed­u­ca­tional, cul­tural and tourist ac­tiv­i­ties. parcs-na­turels-re­gionaux.fr/en
