    All this is now possible at Boire des Carrés. Listed under the department's Espaces Naturels Sensibles (ENS) scheme, this site is located on the banks of the Allier near Saint-Rémy-en-Rollat and Charmeil.

    Before setting off, download the "La Boire des Carrés" Mobile Application: as you walk, audiovisual content and quizzes appear on the screen, depending on your GPS position, to tell the story of the site. Observing the flora and fauna is no longer the privilege of specialists: you can spot beaver tracks, see and hear remarkable birds and recognize trees.
