GETTING TO THE POLE DES ESPACES NATURELS AND THE RESERVE
Easy access: the village of Saint-Denis-du-Payré is halfway between Luçon and l’Aiguillon-sur-Mer, in Vendée, a little over half an hour away from La Rochelle and La Roche-sur-Yon. The Pôle des Espaces Naturels is next to the church, in the heart of the village. The car park for the centre is on Rue de la Ruette (see map below). A vehicle will be needed to get to the nature reserve, which is three miles away.
The car park for the Pôle des Espaces Naturels of the Marais Poitevin is 220 yards away from Centre.
