Authentic marshland charm
Enjoy a relaxing break in the Marais Poitevin, a unique area of picturesque marshland which is also known as ‘Green Venice’. Here the plants and wildlife are as varied as the peaceful landscapes – a mix of tree-lined pastures and green waterways, pretty villages and quiet towpaths.
Take a guided tour in a traditional flat-bottomed boat or follow the network of marked trails by bike or on foot to explore this magical corner of Poitou-Charentes. And while you’re here, don’t forget to try the local food specialities – a real treat for the taste buds.
Maison Flore is a charming small hotel located in an authentic, marshland property surrounded by canals. Relax in one of the 10 comfortable bedrooms, each decorated on a floral theme, and start your day with an energy-boosting breakfast of organic and natural products.
The owners have every respect for their natural heritage, using renewable energy both to minimise their impact on the environment and demonstrate good ecological practices to their guests. So Maison Flore is proud to have been awarded a European Eco Label.
