Le Rougadou

Noves, Châteaurenard - Mountains

The Rougadou is a very small (254 ha), isolated in the midst of very few wooded areas. It is located to the Northwest of the Department, near the Durance and the continuity of the Rhone corridor.The Rougadou massif consists of several hills globally oriented in a direction North / South, the low average height, but the relatively steep relief.Due to its positioning in the axis of the Rhone Valley, the massif of the Rougadou is strongly subject to influence by the mistral, blowing sustained a large part of the year.Forming a set of wooded hills, the Rougadou massif presents a very high rate of afforestation (83%), these stands are mainly composed of pine forests in good health condition, accompanied by green oak.Despite its small size the Rougadou massif is a very frequented by the local population (families, hunters, school,...) due to its isolated situation of other larger clumps. Thus, a reception area of the public in the forest (ZAPEF) premiered in limit of massif, in the town of Chateaurenard.Because of its small size, the urban problem is little developed, even if it can report the problem of subdivisions quite difficult to defend in the commune of Noves.
