Discover the Green Venice by traditional boat from our campsite on the île de Ré !
The Green Venice is discovered during a trip in a traditional boat. Take this opportunity to enjoy the calm and tranquility of the area, as well as the authenticity of the landscape.
You have the choice between a boat or a canoe at the pier of La Venise Verte au Mazeaud to enjoy your walk.
On site, you will find guides who will accompany you throughout this adventure.
It is a rare opportunity to discover the richness of the natural heritage of the place during your tourist vacations on the île de Ré.
Let yourself be seduced by the magic of fire on the water, an impressive natural chemical phenomenon. This stroll takes you on a journey through an ocean of greenery, during which the boat guide will tell you the story of the marsh. While sliding gently on the water, you will be lulled by anecdotes and legends while contemplating the originality of the flora and fauna of the area. You can also discover the Poitevin Marsh during a bike ride.
The Poitou Marsh, whose surface area reaches nearly 100,000 hectares, extends over two regions (Payse de la Loire, New Aquitaine) and three departments (Vendée, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres). As one of the “Grands Sites de France”, it guarantees visitors an unforgettable experience in a unique ecosystem.
If you opt for a boat trip, you will sail peacefully to the rhythm of the boat guide’s pigouille between water lilies, ash trees, willows and poplars. Along the way you will meet elegant herons, beavers, otters, frogs, swans, waders, plovers and, if you pay attention, some deer.
During your visit to the Green Venice, your guide will draw your attention to details that most visitors do not understand. For example, he will explain why ash trees are pruned into pollards and reveal that their height varies according to the use of the plot in which they are located.
