We have a holiday tomorrow so it's an early weekend for us here.
Reminiscing road trips, I would like to share our short summer day trip to Marais-Poitevin.
It is a large marshland in the Western France in the Pays de la Loire and Poitou-Charente regions. Situated in the West of Niort, North of La Rochelle and South of Fontenay-Le-Comte. How to get there? Click here
|Town of Coulon on the Green Venice|
It was declared a Regional National Park until 1996 when the area grew heavy in agriculture.
Nevertheless, this unique site attracts a lot of tourists for the weekend especially during the summer.
The artists are drawn to this place. Everywhere you look, there is a source of inspiration.
The still green waters of cris-crossing canals, dykes and rivers
drew the nickname ''La Venise Verte" or The Green Venice.
|Popular for the trees- Saule Pleureur, you'll see a lot of this tree on the meadows and lots of cows too.|
|Picturesque Canals for touristic row boating or punting|
Families stop for a lazy picnic lunch.
|Haven't cycled in 8 years until this trip.|
|After 25 km, I gave up. Reward: great experience and all unused muscles were aching all over|
