A Regional Nature Reserve, the Marais de la Vacherie is open to the public and to people with reduced mobility. At the gateway to the Baie de l'Aiguillon, come and discover all the ornithological riches of the Marais Poitevin, depending on the season. Programme of events on request.


The Marais de la Vacherie observatory is open all year round and is accessible to all thanks to a ramp for people with reduced mobility. It is equipped with interpretation panels on the surrounding flora and fauna and a telescope. Don't forget your binoculars.
The observatory is open all year round, but the best times for observation are winter and spring.

In winter, ducks, plovers and lapwings frequent the reserve.
In spring, many birds nest on the site: black-tailed godwits, redshanks, teal, black terns, white stilts and many more...

Events are organised on and off the site on themes such as storks, dragonflies, batrachians, etc. Ask for the programme.

Accès à la plateforme d'observation à ciel ouvert 7 jours /7 et 24 h/24. Pensez à vos jumelles ou à avoir du gel hydroalcoolique si vous souhaitez désinfecter la longue vue.
