Magnifique balade

Magnifique balade au fil de l'eau de ce superbe marais Poitevin. Que dire, c'est calme, beau, reposant, ressourçant même, riche d'histoire que nous a compter avec passion notre guide Yannick qui le connaît sur le bout des doigts.
Que dire de plus, accueil très agréable et prix tout à fait correct d'autant plus que nous étions que tous les deux sur la barque.

  • Allez y foncez, à faire absolument.
