La Durantie sits in an environmentally protected area surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and between two of the most beautiful villages in France, Puycelsi and Castelnau-de-Montmiral. It is one of very few developments in France to receive a permit to build in an area of such outstanding natural beauty and the developers strive to conserve this area’s rich biodiversity.

Whilst construction continues at La Durantie, all is done correctly according to environmental regulations to make sure that every bird, Caterpillar, and orchid is logged and “rehomed where necessary”. Residents will be able to enjoy the diversity of flora and fauna found at La Durantie by getting involved in a variety of “back to nature” activities right on their doorstep. Sit in your garden and listen to the beautiful sound of the nearby deer mating calls, go wild mushroom foraging in the adjacent Grésigne forest, or simply sit back and enjoy the awe-inspiring views of the surrounding countryside.
With the autumn sun continuing to shine in the Tarn, weather conditions are set to be perfect to complete the foundations of the first 10 houses at La Durantie, keeping it on track for its first homes in early spring 2016.
