The particularity of the commune of Mandagout lies in its habitat dispersed in picturesque hamlets surrounded by chestnut woods.
Its territory is crossed by an old draille rising from the valleys towards the passes of La Luzette and Espérou, recalling the importance of the ridges paths in the past before the construction of roads in valley bottoms.
Its rich hydraulic heritage allows you to understand the stages of water recovery and its use for ferry crops ...
Mandagout still has many farmers and producers who continue to cultivate pippin apple, chestnut and sweet onions. Indeed, the slopes located on the outskirts of Beaulieu and towards the Arboux valley have south-east facing terraces, benefiting from natural ventilation thanks to the topography of the valley. These wide, flat, deep spaces made up of granite arenas welcome the cultivation of PDO sweet onions.
