A remnant of the former Gulf of Poitou, Poitevin Marshes has become famous as the second largest marshland in the country. It comprises dry marsh areas as well as a wet marsh area, which is made up of a maze of islets and canals. The wet marsh is used by tourists for boat rides and has been given the nickname la Venise Verte or The Green Venice. The Poitevin Marshes was declared an interregional park in 1996 and is now a preserved site. A visit to Poitevin Marshes represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Nouvelle-Aquitaine attractions planner to plot your vacation.
