A green house, in the Marais Poitevin, Poitevin marsh, known as "la Venise Verte", Green Venice. Quiet typical sight and access only in the boat.

One sight
Other sight

The sea occupied there is 8000 years all the golf of Pictons.
The 95 000 hectares of the Poitevin Marsh, were built by the marine currents and the alluvia brought by the rivers and rivers. Since the Neolithic era, the resources were exploited there. Salt, fishing, the breeding were developed there until the time Gallo Romaine. With the Middle Ages began great work of draining and installation under the impulse of the abbeys, like the abbaye bénédictine of Maillezais. They continued in particular under Henri IV and the second empire. It was necessary and it is still necessary, to contain the effects of the sea and evacuate surface waters of a marsh often to the lower part of the open seas.
On the whole thousands of kilometers of channels of all sizes, drains, ditches, conches, were dug.

The marshes are divided into two, the desiccated marshe of 47.000 hectares, the wet marshe known as "La Venise Verte", Green Venice of 29.000 hectares. 19000 hectares partially desiccated should be added.
The pressure of agriculture and the catastrophic and total change of climate, lead a difficult existence to the Poitevin marsh.
Le Marais Poitevin

Uma imagem muito interessante, com a bela casa encravada em plena natureza. Gosto da inclusão da beira do rio. Muito boa!



Salut Joel.
On a de la peine à croire qu'une telle maison puisse exister. J'aime beaucoup les trois photos qui nous montrent que ce n'est pas un décor de cinéma mais bien une maison dans un très beau paysage. Le soleil joue avec les frondaisons pour faire des taches claires sur l'herbe et la façade.
Un vrai plaisir !

Ciao Joel,
una bella casa immersa nel verde, dove sicuramente non si sente il rumore delle macchine ma solo che barche che passano.
ben fatto

Bonjour Joel,
very nice spring presentation in 3 images. Amazing house between the green nature. Good note and interesting links. Solid work.

Hello Joël,
Let sleeping dogs lie! The same dog was sunning itself in this garden when I was in Arcais last month. A fine capture of this peaceful garden and typical house of the marais poitevin. Very good natural colours and excellent clarity.

encore un petit nid douillet que tu nous montres dans ce marais poitevin , comme tu le précises: "une petite Venise verte"
Tes ws sont superbes dont un qui nous permet de voir la maison sur un autre côté, une belle nature autour verdoyante, ombre et lumière, une excellente composition

Hi Joel,
I look around Favorites Received in a portfolio, this likes the mood of the photo very much . Enchanting and peaceful sight. The man craves place like this after the noisy city. Have a nice day

Hello Joël,

I feel here almost in a fairy tale house with the fairy behind the corner.
What a quiet place, pleasant for a pausing in this garden, with a good cup of coffee.
Nice composition and good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Salut Joël,
On dirait une belle place à côté de la rivière. et ce qui est vu, avec une végétation abondante. Excellent couleurs où le vert est dominant. Un simple travail sans travaux majeurs de construction, très bien fait.

Bonjour Joel,

les différentes teintes de vert sont vraiment bien rendues sur cette composition. L'image est vraiment plaisante et reposante.
J'aime beaucoup.

Hello Joël. The light and shade works well in this green area. Sharp details and the crop is perfect with the house and the river in good balance. Very good work and I like the notes too. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Bonsoir Joel,

encore une photo de ta part qui arrete mon attention pour plusieuers moments, plus que d'habitude. Ici le romantisme remplace la grande architecture qui t'entoure a chaque pas. Un coin brillamant choisi pour etre immortalise dans ta galerie. Une atmosphere qui invite les pieds nus de se promener et de juir la liberte.

Si je reste a Belgrade les jours prochains je me regalerais dans ta galerie ou il y a plusieurs photos qui m'ont echappees pendant que je faisais le photo-safari dans la region danubienne. Amicalement a toi,


Salut Joel,
Une composition bien agreable et magnifique..
Je voudrais vivre dans cette place..
Une dominante pleine de verdure
Merci pour partager
