Once upon a time … A vast marsh shaped by Man since the Middle Ages, composed of fields and market gardens surrounded by canals, small islands on which emerge charming houses and de large ponds with exceptional fauna and flora.
A site on which several dozen homes are still today accessible only by boat and where the school pickup was still made only a few decades ago not by bus but by boat. A huge space just a stone’s throw from the city and yet it feels like being in the middle of nature. A territory to which the stress and agitation of the city have no access, where only the song of the birds breaks the silence, where traditions and the taste of work well done endure. A taste that is transmitted through the vegetables grown on site and sold directly by the market gardeners.
The marsh can be discovered on foot, by bike or by boat … Be sure to visit the workshop of the last manufacturer of bacôves and escutes, the traditional boats of the marsh.
