LE MARAIS POITEVIN
Once a marin gulf, the Marais Poitevin is one of the most beautiful landscapes built by man 1000 years ago.
The Marais Poitevin extends over 112 000 hectares of channels and nature intertwined. It is divided into 3 zones: the littoral zone, the desiccated marshes devoted to agriculture and the wet marsh also known as 'Green Venice.' where your guest house is located. It covers three departments: Vendée, Deux-Sèvres, Charente-Maritime.
Numerous piers are waiting for you to discover the 'paths of water' of the Green Venice. In the shade of the tadpole ash trees, flat (traditional flat-bottomed boats) led by boatmen will bring you, if you wish, to the majestic doors of the Abbey of the Marais in Maillezais.
