Called the "Green Venice", The Marais Poitevin is a vast territory consisting of water and greenery that stretches over three departments : Vendee, Deux-Sèvres and Charente-Maritime. This vast territory is the former Gulf of Poitou gradually clogged by silt and dotted with mounds, remains of ancient islands. Its area is estimated to ​​about 100 000 hectares : the dried marshes cover an area of approximately 47,000 hectares. On the other side, wet marshes cover an area of ​​about 29,000 hectares, while intermediaries marshes account for about 19 ​​000 hectares. The territory has a very high diversity : diversity of landscapes, biodiversity, hydraulic diversity ...

Through the 400 km of channels, one starts to encounter the famous "Green Venice" near Niort, dried marsh with small bridges and comely locks, and the Aiguillon Bay and its nature reserve . The marsh offers different landscapes, shaped by man and nature, where nature lovers may find peace and serenity.

The Marais Poitevin is also a paradise for wildlife. The marsh is home to eels, which became its emblem, as well as pike, zander, perch, tench, carp, roach, gudgeon ... The marsh also provides shelters to many birds such as herons, binhoreau, kingfisher, woodpecker, oriole... but also the coypu which poses some problems of nuisance in the banks.

Angelica, purple loosestrife, flowering reed, reeds, duckweed ...are also part of the flora of the Marais...

To discover this wide range of flora and fauna, and green out of sight, nothing is better than taking the boat with or without a guide.

A total immersion in the heart of nature.
