The “Marô”

The “Marô” is none other than the local name that is attributed to the “Breton marsh Vendéen”. It is a marsh present in vendée, but also in the Loire-Atlantique. It should be noted, however, that 90% of this marsh is located on the Vendéen territory. This marsh is made up of wetlands. It is estimated that their area is estimated at at least 4,500 hectares.

In the Marô, it’s not just birds, insects or fish. Indeed, we note the presence of several mammals such as: otters, water rats, voles … to name a few.


Secondly, the landscapes offered by the Marô are peaceful and beautiful. In addition, there is a beautiful diversity of landscapes in the marsh. Therefore, once you are there, you do not see the time pass so much you are captivated by the beauty of the place.
