The Salavès threatened

Our commune

The Salavès is situated on either side of the Vidourle river, between St-Hippolyte-du Fort and Quissac.  It includes the medieval village of Sauve and magnificant lanscapes, just a few kilometre from the foothills of the Cévennes (Ville de Sauve).

The Commune of Sauve has undertaken a major project to improve the facilities and look of the village, with the aim of developing its potential as a centre for Green Tourism.  The Municipal Council is managing an investment programme of 5.4 million € which is renewing the water, sewage, electric, internet and telephone facilities, the public lighting, the resurfacing of the streets and the renovation of  the buildings.  It also includes a programme to improve the paths for walkers, cyclists and equestrians, with new signage and the establishment of a Green Pathway following the former railway track, which will eventually run between Nîmes and Le Vigan.

The exceptionally rich flora and fauna of the Salavès. These include more than a dozen protected species of orchid, some of them extremely rare, and a varied population of insects and beetles living in a fragile environment.

  

ALERT!

The threat is coming from the Domaine de Sebens

  

THE GREEN TOURISM OF THE COMMUNE IS PUT AT RISK by a private project in the valley of the Banassou, which has an entirely differect objective: the illegal installation of a motoclub in 2012 and, since 2004, the renting out of the Domaine de Sebens for commercial  rally car trials (the site Motoclub de Sebens has been taken down, probably as a result of the attention drawn to it by this site).
