A Paradise for outdoor leisure activities

Change your speed ! Sing the praises of slowness !

Staying with us is changing your way of travelling … leaving your car behind and using the bicycle or the rowing boat !

More than 100 km of cycle tracks and itineraries, even more shady waterways and many itineraries for visits will enable you to discover the architectural richness of Niort or the astonishing landscapes of the Green Venice.
On a bike, on foot or on horseback, wander along the white pathways of the Marais Poitevin and visit the typical marsh villages, the medieval centre of Niort or the castles along the Sèvre Niortaise river.
On "plates" or "piates" (traditional rowing boats) follow the mill races and canals and wander into the heart of the « Wild Marshlands ».

Don't forget to get your guide books, maps and itineraries at the Tourist Office. Also available on line.
