Conveniently located between Niort and the Ocean, Coulon experienced intense harbour activity from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. The river traffic and the exchange of goods ensured a constant development. In the 19th century, the original Sèvre arm was channelled and the present configuration of the village was drawn. The Maison du Marais Poitevin, on the banks of the river, allows you to understand and discover the life and traditions of market gardening. Coulon is an ideal starting point for discovering the wet marsh on foot, by boat, by bike or by small tourist train.

To see: Ste-Trinité church (false external handkerchief and funerary liter), Sotterie dam-lock, old Coulon walls, Quai Louis Tardy and house with blue shutters.

To do: Maraisthon in June (eco-marathon), Marais Rally in June (canoe-kayak night track game) and Festival in Coulon in June-July (village festival).
