Biological Reserve departmental Nalliers - Mouzeuil St-Martin
Where the Poitevin marshes reveals its secrets
Located at the gates of Marais wet, midway between Lucon and
Fontenay-le-Comte, the Biological Reserve departmental Nalliers Mouzeuil
Saint-Martin where 132 hectares of the Marais Poitevin has been
protected for nearly twenty years by the General Council, protects. This
reserve is open to the public from April to September and offers an
exceptional discovery of the wildlife and flora of the wet marsh.
Shaped by the hand of the man who has left his mark, the biological
reserve departmental Nalliers-Mouzeuil is now a maze of canals and
grassy roadways leading visitors to the hut of famous huttiers who
lived here since the seventeenth century, virtually self-sufficient, by
arranging to have vines, firewood, water and food on hand.
This fragile legacy, the reserve is a place of mysteries that also inspires many artists and writers.
The Reserve is a perfect place to study a little more closely, the
purple herons, hawks, kestrels, water shrews, moorhens, Dragonflies and
even otters, who rarely show the tip of their nose but do have an
address in the Reserve.
In the projection room of the Reserve you can watch a half hour film
before your visit. Your guide Laurent Tullis, is a specialist who
will reveal with passion, the secrets of the Reserve ... From its
mysterious plants that smell or pineapple ... sausage. The escarole, a
natural compass who point their spines to the North. Frogs, larvae of
insects, Dragonflies and many other species ... So many unsuspected
wonders that live and multiply before our eyes, you will discover on the
tour of one or three kilometers.
Two observatories,within the site, give an overview of this vast mosaic which combines different backgrounds.
There is a pic nic area alongside the reserve and Communal de Nailliers
is just across the road. This is one of the many communal lands of the
Marais Poitevin which dates back to the twelve century and every spring
they are open to all the locals to graze their cattle, horses and geese.
