  • If you are a birder and wondering around Pays de La Loire, just take road to Cite des Oiseaux in Les Landes-Genusson. There are two lakes and a Observatory from which you can observe the birds and it ...  more »
  • Superb corner of nature, quite isolated, in the heart of the Vendée, almost in the middle of nothing. It falls on this reservation, which is very well signposted from the Landes Park. These are 2 fairly large water bodies, occupied by hundreds of birds. Admission is free and you access any part of the site freely, namely the path along the seawall on the left and a portion on the right in the forest in the direction of a large Observatory in wood. The site isn't huge because a good half of the reserve is prohibited access. It takes 1 to 2 hours to do everything, but you can spend much more time if you stay to watch the show on the Lake. In summer, we have seen of great colonies of great egrets, herons oxen peaks, cormorants, grebes spatulas exclusive and full of ducks. Not easy to identify everything, I recommend you to follow the tour on Sunday at 3 p.m. by a specialist with a long view which gives a wealth of information and shows you the most beautiful birds. It's free and we were very well received. There is also a museum featuring an educational exhibition at €4.50 the entry, we did not go. Finally, in summer 2018, there is an exhibition of large photos of birds in the open air, to see. Beware, parking is to the right of the site arriving. It is not well marked and we turned on the wrong side. The rural guard nicely directed us. The reception building is across the parking lot, don't fool yourself either with Museum seen arriving. The hospitality is great and it tells you the animations. We borrowed, free of charge, the twins leaving identification in Exchange. And all for free. The guides told us that the site is interesting all year and not only in the summer, although there is much less entertainment out of summer. Comparison, we have seen a lot more birds on this site at Lake Grandlieu and especially the observatories are much closer to better see.

  • The setting is lovely, a bath of nature and tranquility, with free access. The small museum paid next worth too, not essential. Big plus: the long summer tour. A guide makes us discover the place and birds (with a long view), it's exciting. And free: to absolutely do in summer.
