One of the many specificities of the Marais poitevin lies in its diversity of landscapes, especially between the dry marsh and the wet marsh. Indeed, between the Middle-Ages and the mid- 20th century, men shaped the territory of the Marais poitevin and pushed back the ocean, liberating cultivable lands and digging canals to let water irrigate the fields. Over the centuries, men and natural elements have sculpted the landscapes of the Marais poitevin; you can now visit them with the help of your map!

Rent a boat and go discover the Green Venice! Ride your bike and use the bike paths of the dry marsh. Visit the villages of the Marais poitevin and stroll in great places to live, far away from the urban agitation and close to the nature.
