Presentation of: MARAIS SALANTS DE LA VIE

The salt marshes, shaped by man since the 7th century AD, bear witness to the intense activity that reigned recently around the harvest of "white gold".
The rehabilitation of old salt marshes in the lower Vie valley has brought salt exploitation back to life since the 1990s.

LES MARAIS SALANTS DE LA VIE : a picturesque discovery in the heart of the marshes that allows you to understand the work of the salt worker and to admire the traditional gestures he performs on a daily basis.
The fauna and flora of this natural territory made up of land and water are also presented to you during your visit which ends, if you wish, with a tasty tasting of the local salt production.
