The boat: the best way to discover the Marais Poitevin!

In the shade of weeping willows, ash trees and poplars, "the Old Port" invites you to discover the Green Venice.
With a boatman, weave your way silently through the ditches, coves and gullies under the verdant canopy of pollard ash trees... You may see the Kingfisher, the Heron, the Coypu or the trace of the Otter...
You can also go alone, by boat or canoe, with family or friends.
The marsh offers itself to you, let yourself be enchanted by the magic of the place. Walk through this labyrinth where green is king and nature lush.
