The Marais Poitevin or Poitevin Marsh is a large area of marshland in western France. The name means "Poitou's Marsh" or the "Marsh of the Poitou region".
It is a remnant of the former Gulf of Poitou. The western zone near the sea
is called the "dry marsh" and is used for farming and breeding. The eastern zone, called the "wet marsh", is a maze of islets crisscrossed by picturesque canals now used for tourist boating. It is nicknamed The Green Venice.
