Need of "elsewhere", disconnection, slow down the accelerated rhythm of daily life?
Among the activities offered by La Maison de Rompsay, a pleasant walk along the river. Discover the beauty of the Marais Poitevin from the town of Marans, located a few kilometres from La Rochelle.
Its birds, flowers, willows, weeping willows and many other beautiful surprises await you in this natural region of France, straddling the departments of Vendée, Deux-Sèvres and Charente-Maritime. The ensemble made up of the Poitevin marsh and Aiguillon Bay, relict of the Gulf of Pictons, covers approximately 100,000 hectares: it's the second largest wetland in France after the Camargue. Part of it constitutes the Marais Poitevin Regional Nature Park.
On May 20, 2010, the wet marshes known as "Green Venice" were awarded the label "Great Site of France".
