BIOCLIMATIC VILLA

The Bioclimatic Villa of the Reserve des Monts d'Azur offers maximum comfort with a minimum environmental impact.
Rediscover the joy of a setting made of natural materials. All elements (walls, floors, furniture…) have reused as many raw materials as possible, including cellulose wadding recycled from the Nice Matin newspaper. This is how we reduce waste harmful to the environment.

The recent installation of heat pumps for heating and hot water production has enabled our Nature site to be one of the very first “Zero greenhouse gas emissions” sites.
It’s one thing to talk about smart management of natural resources, it is even better to implement it !

For your next vacation, why not combine the joys of a comfortable stay and the discovery of wildlife ?
This is where the Animal Reserve des Monts d'Azur in the Alpes-Maritimes welcomes you to its bioclimatic Villa.

THE LITTLE MANSION

Are you looking for an authentic and atypical vacation, for couples or families?
The Monts d'Azur Reserve welcomes you all year in the Petit Manoir, a 17th-century building steeped in history and renovated mindful of the environment.

Live a wild experience less than an hour away from the beaches of the Côte d'Azur. During winter, the Monts d'Azur Reserve even dons a large white coat, making your stay in our rooms at the “Petit Manoir” a peaceful and enchanting moment.

2H GUIDED WALKING SAFARI

Intended for the most active and curious and those looking for total immersion in nature. UNIQUE in EUROPE, the walking safari allows you to live an impressive experience at the heart herds made up of bison, wild horses, deer, fallow deer, elk or wild boar. Guided by our experts and wearing your most comfortable shoes (leave your flip-flops and your bathing suit for Saint-Tropez), you will survey the wooded plains and steeper areas for signs of animal presence. You will be able to observe the complex behaviours of the wildlife. No enclosure, no bars. Between you and them, there is only twenty metres of nature and the euphoric feeling of freedom. Live a rare experience of communion with the wild fauna! Change your relationship with the wild by becoming an animal among animals, linked to them in deep mutual respect.

GUIDED CARRIAGE SAFARI

Ideal for a first discovery of the Reserve. The horse-drawn carriage safari allows the youngest of our visitors, the less mobile, or the less “athletic” to enjoy, lulled by the roll of the horse-drawn carriage, the wonders that the wildness can offer. Towed by two robust draft horses, Mulassiers Poitevins or Boulonnais, the carriages take different routes depending on the time and day to follow the movements of wild animals.
Come and discover the life of the European bison, wild horses, elk, stags, hinds or wild boars … and all the species that may greet you among the 800 found on the Monts d'Azur Animal Reserve.

The Reserve is not a zoo and many animal species still remain discreet, especially during periods of high heat !

"DEER’S BELLOW” VACATION

From the month of September, as long as it rains, the males encounter one another and sound out their cry known as the bellow.
During this special time for all the animals at La Réserve, stag and doe come closer to our accommodations and pretend to ignore our visitors.

This makes the observation of the animals much easier.
Strange ballets, sometimes impressive confrontations or fake combats, the bellow of the deer is an eventful look in the life of La Réserve.

Offer valid from the 1st weekend of September to the last weekend of October.
During this exceptional stay, explore La Réserve during 3 VIP guided safaris to meet our famous “30 cors”. And capture on film (yes, we are nostalgic!) those moments of rare intimacy represented by the bellow of the red deer.

OUR ECOLODGES

The best time to observe the animals is during the golden dawn or the red dusk, when they gather near the ponds to drink, this is where the Reserve offers you its ecolodges.
A very enriching Adventure vacation !

Made of canvas and wood, the ecolodges are built to offer visitors a breathtaking view of the great plains and the lakes of the Reserve where many animals gather. Their impact on the natural environment is very small since they can be dismantled and moved.
The ecolodges are available for reservations from May 15 to October 30, these dates being subject to change by management depending on the weather.

GUIDED SAFARI WITH SNOWSHOEING/ON FOOT (DEPENDING ON FALLEN SNOW)

In winter with the snow, the safari is on snowshoes. In the melancholic silence of winter, while the wild landscapes are covered with snow, time seems to stand still. The safari then turns into a rejuvenating hike, perfect for understanding the importance of Nature. Put on your warmest winter outfits and humbly explore this immaculate sanctuary.

GUIDED SAFARI SLEIGH/HORSE-DRAWN (DEPENDING ON SNOW)

Who said that the sleigh was reserved for Santa Claus? Treat yourself to a peaceful stroll in the heart of the wild at the Reserve des Monts d'Azur, in a peaceful winter atmosphere. During winter, snow can cover all the 700 hectares of the Reserve, to the delight of children (and adults !).
Unless you have a beautiful winter fur like the European Bison, coats, and warm boots are highly recommended during the winter as it can be very cold !
