The Moulière Forest is the largest public forest in the Vienne département (covering an expanse of over 4,000 ha), and was the site of thriving millstone quarries throughout many centuries. It enjoys an exceptional position, lying between the Vienne and Clain valleys in the heart of a triangle whose summits are dominated by the département’s major towns - Poitiers, Châtellerault and Chauvigny. This virgin space, devoid of any recreational facilities, will continues fulfilling its triple role as a source of quality wood production, protector of flora and fauna and provider of leisure space for people increasingly in search of fresh air, peacefulness and greenery.
