“Very interesting but a little long!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the metier of 'paludier'. We opted for the one and half hour tour which was led by one of the co-operative members who took us out to the salt marshes and explained all about the job including how to harvest the gros sel and fleur de sel as well as what is involved in maintaining the land over the winter months. Would have like something a little more interactive perhaps with more focus on the differences in the salts and terroir influence as well as the chance to compare them. The visit was in French but I think the paludier spoke some English too. Certainly recommend visiting the salt marshes, cycling around and stopping here to stock up on a lovely range of products. Thought that 10 euros per person was a bit steep as it was a group of around 25 people.
