The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
Our area of the Marais Poitevin is also known as the Venise Verte (Green Venice) and is world renowned by artists who come here for the light, the variety in the innumerable shades of green and to capture the magic of this enchanting area. The landscape is criss-crossed by a system of canals lined by willows and poplar trees. The canals are surrounded by green vegetation which is where the name of Venise Vert originates.
We are in the south of the Vendee, close to La Rochelle and the Ile de Re.
In the Vendee you will find fabulous coastline with its sandy beaches. A trip to the history theme park “Le Puy du Fou” is an unforgettable day out for all the family – not to be missed (1 hour drive).
