The Green Cut - Coupure Verte

What is a "Green Cut"? As the name suggests, it is a space cut off from all urbanization. This is indeed the case with Coupure Verte in Batz-sur-Mer. It is a green space which maintains a green, natural separation between two urbanization zones. The Coupure Verte helps maintain the rural character of a municipality and guarantees Batziens, Baztiennes, a green space. The Coupure Verte in Batz-sur-Mer represents 150 hectares. Enough to spend time in nature: between dirt roads, low walls, archaeological remains... but also allow local productions to develop on "green" land. Green clippings therefore have several roles: ecological, landscaped and recreational.
