La Cite De L'Huitre, Marennes

4.2
#2 of 11 in Wildlife in Charente-Maritime
La Cite De L'Huitre spans 10 hectares (25 acres), mostly occupied by an educational oyster farm and interpretation center with five sections. Walk or bike along the "Path of Light" to explore the full scope of the site. Officially opened to the public in October 2006, the site has a restaurant, a shop, and a library.

  • We spent the afternoon with our 5 children and 9 years. They loved the animations and the bike ride in the clear.

  • Interesting exhibitions in the cabins and a life-size work of oyster demonstration. We also learn to open oysters and one can witness the realization of a recipe to warm oysters: guaranteed tasting!

  • A stroll along the port of Marennes took us to the city of the oyster. We recommend to do a foot to enjoy landscapes and hostreicoles huts. Finally you can enjoy the city of oyster to instruct you on its operation and maybe to taste. At your knives!
