What to do while on holiday in the Marais Poitevin?

Lined with alders and willows, the grand site of Marais Poitevin is a true natural paradise. It is famous for its 100,000 hectares of green canals, so it's no wonder that it's been given the nickname Green Venice! The Marais Poitevin region, which begins just outside Niort and extends all the way to the coast and the island of Noirmoutier, also includes the Bay of Aiguillon: a listed bird sanctuary for nature lovers.

During a camping holiday in the Marais Poitevin, don't miss out on any of the destination's top not-to-be-missed activities. For endless fun, start your day with a boat trip down the canals of the Green Venice. From the landing stages at Coulon or Magné, you can rent a boat and discover your own route. Alternatively, climb aboard a traditional flat-bottomed boat and let a professional boatman do all the hard work while you sit back and enjoy the views.

Want to learn more about the biodiversity in the area? Head to the Maisons du Parc. There are two family-friendly interpretation sites to help you and your family discover the area's history, including one in the village of Coulon on the side of the wet marshes and another on the coastal side in Esnandes. These interactive destinations are a fun way to explore the riches of the Marais Poitevin and get up close to the species that live there! The bird park at Saint-Hilaire-la Palud is a great place for a family outing surrounded by nature.

Book a campsite in Poitou with a swimming pool and entertainment to ensure your evenings will be just as fun-filled as your days out in town!

Places of interest in the Marais Poitevin

Visitors flock to the Green Venice for its glorious nature, but you'll also find some fascinating culture and heritage in the Marais Poitevin region. The wet and dry marshes stretch around the Sèvre Niortaise, right up to its mouth in the Baie de l'Aiguillon. The banks are home to some not-to-be-missed historical sites, adding an extra dimension to your camping holiday.

In Niort, the Dungeon Museum is one of those must-sees. First set in a dramatic medieval fortress, its exhibitions bring 1,000 years of history to life. Climb the staircase in the North Tower, and you'll emerge on a panoramic terrace that boasts a full 360° view of the city and its monuments.

The treasures of the Marais Poitevin also include several other popular hotspots, such as the Château de Saint-Mesmin at Saint-André-sur-Sèvre, the Abbey of Nieul-sur-l'Autise and the Abbey of Maillezais.

Not far from the Marais Poitevin, you can continue your holiday and discover our campsites in the Vendée. From the Île de Noirmoutier to the Île d'Yeu, or from Saint-Jean-de-Monts to Sables-d'Olonne, there's so much to discover in this beautiful part of France.
