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.
