Canals of the Marais Poitevin tour

Green Venice…this is the nickname given to 29,000 hectares of wetland that cover some of

the regions of the Pays de la Loire and Poitou-Charentes. Dozens of light green channels (the colour is due to the deposits of poplars, willows and reeds) form the Marais Poitevin, a tranquil haven where you board a boat and glide in absolute calm and admire the unique flora and fauna of the area. Beside the canals there are pretty houses with colorful shutters, often covered with Virginia creeper and blend into the landscape. A guide will steer the boat in a similar fashion to the gondoliers in Venice through shaded channels of mysterious water. You’d be forgiven for falling asleep! See more at:
