“Lovely, peaceful place to visit”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We spent an idyllic afternoon in "La Venise Verte" last August and I returned again this summer to spend a few more pleasant hours. Marais Poitevin, and in particular, Coulon and Arcais are very pictureesque and can be thoroughly recommended.

“A great place to visit!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were greeted at the start of our visit by a fantastic guide who tried her very best to explain to us in English about the context of the region. We were fascinated by the boat building room and everything was presented in both French and English. The video was fascinating - so much so that our very restless 6 and 2 year olds sat through it too! Well worth a visit in this beautiful location!

“Interesting little museum in French and English”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

It was very interesting to visit this small museum on a rainy day, especially as it explains a lot of the landscapes and features you come across while travelling in the Marais Poitevin. Almost all explanations are also in English and the employees took a lot of trouble to see that we could follow everything.

“Interesting to understand this lovely area”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

A good jump off point- the Marais Poitevin itself is stunning, take a barge, a walk and enjoy the local food!
