Established in Arçais since 1976 in the heart of the Marais Poitevin, more precisely called "Green Venice", we do everything we can to meet the expectations of our visitors while protecting our fragile ecosystem.

let yourself be told the secrets of the Marais

Today benefiting from a reception structure of 120 m², Séverine Lamberton and David Mathé promise you a safe, unforgettable ride, in total immersion in the heart of nature.

If we have chosen to continue the shipping of our grandparents, it is to make you discover a unique region. Considered the largest wetland in France after the Camargue, the Marais Poitevin remains an area of major ecological interest. This unique territory, shaped by generations of market gardeners, offers the incessant spectacle of the union of water and light. Originally from this country, "Which is unlike any other", we invite you to come and contemplate it, love it and protect it.

Bardet-Huttiers embarcadère

Today, Arçais, although still rural, has been able to position itself as being, at the present time, a village classified as a "Small city of characters" due to the beauty of its marshes and the architecture of its picturesque habitats. Maintained to preserve its market garden character, it now attracts a large number of visitors, on its coves as well as in its alleys imprinted with a still wandering past! Located in the heart of what charming poets have called "The Green Venice", it alone has more than 40 kilometers of navigable canals, for a marsh area covering 1000 hectares (to illustrate this dimension, the Wet Marshes include 172 km of passable waterways on public property). The entire Huttiers team will be happy to welcome you there.

  • Our local catering on a shaded terrace by the water will welcome you to enjoy this exceptional setting.
  • A large esplanade terrace, a shaded bar and bucolic spaces will allow you to quench your thirst and eat.
  • Private car park equipped with toilets. Accessibility for people with reduced mobility.
  • A "New generation Marais Concept Store" shop with local products, gifts, ethical and responsible objects.
Let yourself be guided along the water, let yourself be told the secrets of the Green Venice.
We take care of you!
