Becoming eco-citizens - "easy everyday gestures"

I economise water

Doing the dishes by hand should not be synonymous with waste: go to the least dirty dirtiest, save water (turn off the tap while washing) and just use the right amount of cleaning, that is the good method.

I control the flow faucets

A double action save hot water is saving both water and energy needed to heat.

The correct position preferably leave the mixing valves in position "cold" to avoid asking for hot water or warm then one needs most of the time, cold water.

I close the tap faucet flowing without reason should trigger an immediate closure reflex. The amount of water saved in this case is huge. With this in mind, when we brush our teeth, it is best to rinse with a toothbrush glass. Similarly, it is easy to fill a little sink to clean his razor.

Brushing teeth = 12 liters / minute if you let the water run, 1 shaving "over water" = 18 liters

I optimizes cooking

The electric hotplates continue to heat for 15 minutes after extinction: this heat, completely free, deserves to be used during long cooking. Hold 1.5 liters of boiling water in a pan request 4 times less energy with a lid.

Priority to fresh

Fresh foods require less energy than canned or frozen products. Local products have generally not used to transport, heated greenhouses, refrigeration or chemical preservatives.

Addition heavy the food system represents almost a third of French emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG). A fruit imported out of season, consumed for transportation 10 to 20 times more oil than the same fruit produced locally and purchased in season.

I warmed in the microwave

Use sparingly food can thaw in the refrigerator without using the microwave: it's slower but it does not consume any energy. The microwave is ideal for heating food and consumes less than a traditional oven.

I cook in the oven

Hunting the drafty open the door of an oven during operation wastes a lot of heat: to assess cooking your preparation, it is better to use lighting control.

I do not throw anything in the toilet

Tampons, diapers, medicine, batteries, paints, solvents, detergents… the toilet is not a trash can. All of these affect the proper operation of treatment plants. Improperly disposed of, they find themselves in a natural environment and degrade the environment.

I sort my waste

Although well to sort recycling waste separation is an indispensable voluntary action for the environment. Each of us must follow sorting instructions not to disturb recycling.

Blue bins for non-recyclable waste

Yellow bins for cardboard, paper and plastic bottles.

Glass bottles must be stored in lockers located next to the containers.

I turn the light off

Acquire a good reflex why let turn an empty room? Remember that 3 bulbs of 75W which remain on an evening consume as much as a washing at 60 ° C.

Electrical devices are often connected 24 hours on 24. The vigils are consuming 150 to 500 kWh per household per year, the consumption of a refrigerator over the same period!

I drink tap water

Changing ideas received tap water is perfectly drinkable, unless otherwise specified by the Departmental Directorate of Health and Social Action. In France, bottled water consumption has been multiplied by 2 in 20 years, which represents thousands of kilometers, tons of fuel consumption and C02 emitted before reaching our table. Not to mention the billion plastic bottles that result. Only 4 of 10 bottles are recycled: think of the sort!

improve the taste to remove the chlorine taste, it is necessary to add the water in a decanter, chlorine evaporating on contact with air. In France, only 1% of tap water for drinking while about 140 liters of bottled water are consumed per year per capita. The mineral water costs at least 50 times more expensive than tap water

I respect nature

Making small animals seeking tranquility for their vital activities. The watch is an exciting and without adverse consequences for the species, provided that one is discreet.

Do not pick plants because they are rare and protected. Every plant, every animal, even the most banal, have a role to play in nature.

A space preserve nature is fragile, the minimum is strictly follow the regulations in place. The marked trails, suitable for walking and biking, to be borrowed.

Places privileged nature reserves or national parks that welcome walkers under certain conditions, rely on their discipline.

Nature is a space to share with its people, with respect for each

Listed Historical Monuments since 1879

The St. Nicholas Tower

Legend has it that the St. Nicholas tower was built by the fairy Melusine. As she flew above La Rochelle with the stones of a destroyed castle, her apron tore. The stones falling on top of each other would have formed the tower Saint-Nicolas...

This tower whose date of construction is not attested by any historical document, constitutes with the tower of the Chain, a gate of the Old Port of La Rochelle. For centuries, it has served as the defensive lock of the city's waterfront. A veritable "urban dungeon" and palatial dwelling facing the ocean, this military building symbolizes the power and wealth of La Rochelle.

The tower completed in 1376 and 38 meters high, is built on long stakes of oak sunk in the mud and set by stones. But during its construction the tower sinks into the unstable ground and leans towards the Northeast. It is then reinforced and from the 2nd floor, it regains its equilibrium. We still see today this slight imbalance.

The Tower of the Chain

After the completion of the tower Saint-Nicolas, the municipality has built the tower of the Chain from 1382 to 1390. Its name comes from the big iron chain that had to maneuver with a winch to allow entry and exit ships in the Old Port. The Captain of the Tower thus monitored the movements of the boats and collected the duties and taxes of passage.

In 1472, the tower receives the visit of King Louis XI. A legend says that he engraved an inscription on a window of the tower with the diamond he wore on his finger...

While serving as a powder keg during the Fronde (uprising against the monarchy in the minority of Louis XIV), the Tower explodes and remains 300 years open. Major restoration work is taking place in the 20th and 21st centuries with the reconstruction of a battlemented way, the creation of a new roof and then the restoration of 2 floors inside.

The Lantern Tower

The origins of the Lantern tower date back to the end of the 12th century. Located at the corner of the wall of the Saint-Jean-du-Pérot district, the last medieval lighthouse on the Atlantic coast, it served throughout its history of lighthouse and prison.

First residence of the "Disarmer of the nave" to disarm the ships before they enter the port, it is then equipped with a monumental arrow and a lantern to guide the sailors. 55 meters high, it is visible from all the Pertuis d'Antioche (strait between the islands of Ré, Aix and Oléron) and participates in the "Watch for the sea" for the military surveillance of the coast.

From the 16th century the tower serves as a prison. It contains prisoners of war captured at sea, sailors, mainly English, Dutch and Spanish. Protestants at the time of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes are also locked up as well as insurgents vendéens. In 1822, the "Four Sergeants" leading a plot to overthrow King Louis xviii are arrested in La Rochelle, two of them are imprisoned in the tower before being guillotined in Paris... a story that will earn him among others the nickname "Tower of 4 Sergeants".

A bright and dynamic city with a rich history and heritage

La Rochelle, the prefecture of Charente-Maritime, has made the most of its many attractions to charm visitors. The Vieux-Port quarter, the city's most emblematic district, has inspired many painters and photographers. Its three towers, listed as Historic Monuments since 1879, are remains of the medieval fortifications. The Lantern Tower, also town as the "Four Sergeants Tower", dating from the 15th century, served as a lighthouse before becoming a prison, into whose stone walls Huguenots, corsairs and foreign sailors etched around 600 graffiti. At the very top, you can enjoy a lovely view of the city and the harbour!

The other two towers, built at the end of the 14th century, were used to defend the port for five centuries. The tallest, the St. Nicholas Tower, is 42 metres tall and offers an impressive view from its wall walk. The Chain Tower, which closed the channel to boats, is connected to the Lantern Tower by a curtain wall. The Great Clock Gate (Porte de la Grosse Horloge), topped by a belfry, was added in the 15th century to the city wall.

La Rochelle has many more architectural treasures, which you can discover on a stroll along the streets of its old town. Mansions, beautiful Renaissance homes and half-timbered houses enchant visitors with their refinement and elegance. In the pedestrianised area of the city centre, the arcaded streets feature many shops whose charm is undeniable.

La Rochelle City Hall is one of the city's architectural gems and is a listed Historic Monument. Its Renaissance main building, dating from the 15th and 16th centuries, has a Flamboyant Gothic surrounding wall. Its ornaments are numerous: Corinthian columns, gargoyles, faience, crenellated tower...

There are many museums dotted about the city, offering something for everyone! The Maritime Museum invites you to visit a ship once owned by the French national meteorological service (Météorologie nationale) and a fishing trawler. The lively Museum of Automata and Scale Models exhibits a unique collection of more than 300 moving automata, an astonishing reconstruction of a Montmartre neighbourhood in 1900, and a large number of scale models. In the prestigious setting of an 18th-century mansion, the New World Museum tells the story of relations between France and the Americas, while the superb Natural History Museum is dedicated to lovers of nature, ethnology, science and travel. You can also discover the Fine Arts Museum or the Orbigny-Bernon Museum, exhibiting collections of faience, engravings and paintings.

Not far from the Vieux-Port, La Rochelle Aquarium, one of the most popular aquariums in France, invites sea life enthusiasts to discover the fauna and flora of all the world's oceans. You can also stroll along Les Minimes marina, which attracts sailors from all over the world, or enjoy the fine sand on one of the three beaches: La Concurrence, Les Minimes or L'Houmeau.

Culture is also a strong point of La Rochelle, with a wide range of events: International Sailing Week in May-June, La Rochelle International Film Festival in June-July, the Grand Pavois international boat show in September-October, or La Rochelle Jazz Festival in October. As for the Francofolies music festival in July, it's been an unmissable gathering for fans of French popular song since 1985!

La Maison du Fier, a museum managed by the French League for the Protection of Birds, presents the natural heritage of Ré Island.

In Ars-en-Ré, listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, the famous black and white bell tower is the star of the place. The Phare des Baleines lighthouse, in the municipality of Saint-Clément-des-Baleines, is one of the most powerful on the Atlantic coast. From the top of its 257 steps, at a height of 57 metres, you can enjoy an exceptional view! You then cross Les Portes-en-Ré, where you will find some beautiful beaches and the Trousse-Chemise wood made famous by a Charles Aznavour song, before reaching Loix, at the heart of the salt marshes.

The historic capital of the island, Saint-Martin-de-Ré, has a citadel and 14 km of ramparts, built by Vauban in the 17th century and now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lining its scenic harbour are shops and boutiques, as well as the Ernest-Cognacq Museum telling the story of the island. La Flotte en Ré, an old fishing village full of authentic charm, is also very characterful. Its harbour, winding streets and medieval market are lovely places for a leisurely stroll.

A seaside resort with Belle Époque villas, renowned for its kite festival

The former capital of Aunis on the Atlantic coast, a few kilometres south of La Rochelle, Châtelaillon-Plage is one of the most famous seaside resorts in Charente-Maritime, offering holidaymakers a wide range of activities and leisure facilities.

On a walk around its streets you can see its many Belle Époque villas, typical of the resort architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The fine sand, which runs for three kilometres, and the promenade along the sea front, make it an ideal place for a stroll or a swim in the sea. Its casino and thalassotherapy centre are also part of its heritage.

To the south of the town, you can visit the village of Les Boucholeurs, an authentic oyster port, and sit on one of the magnificent mosaic benches to admire the view of the coast. Steeped in sailors' culture, the oyster and mussel festival takes place in the month of August. Kite-lovers, meanwhile, can attend the international kite and wind festival during the Easter weekend, and be amazed by the sight of the sky filled with pieces of fabric in every colour of the rainbow!

An important city in French maritime history

On the banks of the Charente, Rochefort has kept many reminders of its glorious maritime past. This prestigious city, created by Colbert on the initiative of Louis XIV, owes its fame primarily to its military Arsenal, which produced 550 ships over two-and-a-half centuries.

It is here that the Hermione, the legendary frigate that carried the Marquis de La Fayette, was built. Its amazing replica, built thanks to a community project using the materials and techniques of the time, was completed in 2015 after 18 years of work. Today, it's a fascinating attraction for children and adults to visit.

Housed in a superb 17th-century building measuring 374 metres in length, the Royal Rope Works is an important part of Rochefort's maritime history. This factory, which manufactured ropes for the French Royal Navy, now houses the International Sea Centre.

The National Navy Museum is located in the Hôtel de Cheusses mansion, one of the oldest buildings in the city. It has a hundred or so scale models and collections about the Arsenal's history to discover. The former School of Naval Medicine, founded in 1722, was the first in the world to train surgeons to serve on warships.

The unusual house where Pierre Loti was born is now a museum exhibiting objects and exotic memorabilia that belonged to the famous writer and naval officer from Rochefort. The Museum of Old-time Businesses, with reconstructions of workshops and shops from 1900 to 1945, is also worth a visit, as is the Museum of Art and History, housed in the Hôtel Hèbre, a beautiful 18th-century mansion.

In Rochefort, you can also admire the built heritage, which has earned it the label of Town of Art and History, its marina and natural areas, including the Garden of Returns, the banks of the Charente and the Begonia Conservatory.

A little piece of land that's both wild and protected

Aix Island is a delightful territory of 129 hectares, 3 km long and 600 m wide. On this miniature island known as "the little Corsica of the Atlantic", you feel like you're in another world, full of peace and serenity, where time seems to have stood still...

Visitors can enjoy a 360° panorama including a breathtaking view of Fort Boyard. You can also see Oléron Island, Ré Island and Madame Island. The island's harbour was defended by Fort Liédot, reputedly indestructible and impregnable, and built by Napoleon on the island's highest point. It had room for 600 men and served as a detention centre.

A walk or bike ride around the island on its 7-kilometre customs officers' path, among oyster beds, sandy beaches, coves and woodland areas, is an enchanting experience! Another must-see is the collection of Napoleon I memorabilia on display in the Napoleonic Museum, a house where the emperor stayed from 12 to 15 July 1815, before his exile in Saint Helena. Guided walks are offered by the Tourist Office.

A 11th-century abbey in the heart of the Poitou marshes
Rue du Grand Port, Maillezais

Built at the beginning of the 11th century, the Saint -Pierre abbey of Maillezais, burial place of the Dukes of Aquitaine, is situated in the heart of the Poitou marshes. This Benedictine abbey is noteworthy for having welcomed the French writer François Rabelais as a monk in the 16th century.

The majestic ruins of the abbey church and the convent buildings, which comprise refectories, a kitchen, cellar and salt store, are open to the public.

Welcome to one of Europe's biggest marshes!

Straddling Deux-Sèvres, Charente-Maritime and Vendée, the Poitevin Marsh, which covers 111,200 hectares, is France's second largest wetland area after the Camargue. The area is full of diverse natural habitats and exceptional biodiversity, and is a stopping place for many migrant birds…

The landscape mosaic of the Poitevin Marsh Regional Natural Park is unique, with the coastal area alternating between sandy beaches, dunes and forests, but also cliffs and mudflats on the Bay of Aiguillon side; the wet marsh and its famous Green Venice, a listed Great Site of France, where countless conches (narrow canals) and wider tree-lined canals can be seen; the dried marsh, with vast expanses of crops and meadows; and the edges of the marsh, with plains covered in cultivated fields.

A favourite destination for nature-lovers, the Poitevin Marsh is home to incredible wildlife ranging from the European otter to the European tree frog through the purple heron and the greater horseshoe bat. No fewer than 250 species of birds, 38 species of fish, 60 species of dragonflies and 80 species of butterflies are listed there!

To discover the charms of the wet marsh, a destination in the Poitevin Marsh that's highly prized by lovers of romantic getaways, nothing beats a boat trip in the heart of the mysterious Green Venice, on peaceful canals interwoven with greenery: you are guaranteed a change of scene, where trees and other plants form a kind of vault between water and sky! Many visitors to the Park choose to explore it on foot or by bicycle, to take the time to savour the beauty of the wild, unspoilt countryside at their own pace.

The Poitevin Marsh Park also boasts a rich water industry heritage, and invites you to discover its harbours, locks, hydraulic works, footbridges, fountains and washhouses. For more urban sightseeing, you have the choice between its charming, characterful little towns, such as Arçais, Coulon or Nieul-sur-l'Autise, and gateway cities like Fontenay-le-Comte, Niort, Luçon and Marans. Religious architecture enthusiasts, meanwhile, won't want to miss a chance to visit Maillezais Abbey and see its remarkable relics, a listed Historic Monument.

During your stay in the Poitevin Marsh, you should also make the most of the local gastronomy. Authentic and flavoursome, it gives pride of place to the products of fishing and shellfish farming, not to mention specialities such as farci poitevin, a delicious terrine of green vegetables, frogs' legs, snails, coypu and ham with mogette beans!

Boulevard Winston Churchill - La Rochelle

Formerly bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, between Rochefort and the island of Oleron, the fortified city of Brouage has recently become part of the very exclusive club "Most Beautiful Villages of France". Nestled in the heart of a marsh that covers more than 3,000 hectares, the village enjoys a pleasant climate throughout the year. While walking on the hiking trails, you will certainly encounter herons, ducks and shorebirds such as the Harlequin Knight or the Northern Lapwing, but also white storks that have frequented the site since the late 1970s. The sound of the wind the reeds invite to relax...

This beautiful building is surrounded by magnificent French formal gardens.

The magnificent La Roche-Courbon Castle, in Saint-Porchaire, Charente-Maritime, located on the Saintonge Historical Treasures Route, was built in the 15th century on a rocky spur. It was first a fortress, then became an elegant Renaissance residence in the 17th century.

A listed Historic Monument since 1946, its interiors are refined and full of contrasts. If features a traditional Saintonge kitchen and a rustic bedroom alongside the superb cabinet of paintings, the 18th-century grand drawing room, the Louis XIII drawing room with its painted beams, a hallway with a remarkable staircase and a bathroom sumptuously decorated with paintings on wood.

The setting is enchanting, with splendid French formal gardens that have earned the Remarkable Garden certification label, featuring arrangements of flowers and statues, and a water feature in which the castle is reflected.

On the property, a short distance from the castle, caves inhabited during the Palaeolithic period add to the charm of the place.

Activities, old games, workshops, an escape game and a PréhistoZen trail, along with a Prehistory Museum in the keep, offer a fun and educational experience for all ages.

An oyster farming heritage in a protected natural environment

The Marennes-Oléron basin, made up of six municipalities, is internationally famous for the quality of its oysters, which are bred in beds at sea and then matured in sea water-filled basins called "claires". The marsh, which covers a large part of the basin, forms a mosaic of unique and surprising landscapes, home to many migratory birds such as herons, egrets, swans and storks.

The channel of the Port of La Cayenne offers a renewed spectacle, with its unusual, brightly coloured huts that enchant visitors, painters and photographers. The port is home to the Cité de l'huître, a museum about oyster farming. Visitors can discover a wealth of information about how the famous shellfish is farmed and the skills involved. It consists of four show-huts on different themes. The Chemin des Claires is a path of 3.5 kilometres with information signs, running alongside the channel through marshes and oyster farms.

Architectural heritage also has a place in this exceptional environment. If you climb the 289 steps of the Church of St. Peter of Sales (Saint-Pierre de Sales) in Marennes, you can admire a superb view of the basin and the oyster-farming landscapes from the top of the bell tower, whose spire rises to 85 metres! Brouage, labelled one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, is a former stronghold in the middle of the marshes. It's well worth discovering for its ring of ramparts as well as its watchtowers, bastions and posterns which bear witness to its medieval past. The Château de La Gataudière, an 18th-century stately home and listed Historic Monument, was once owned by an engineer to the King, François Fresneau, who was also the inventor of rubber. Today, its superb grounds contain an adventure park with a treetop rope course, paintballing, karting and orienteering.

A haven of peace and greenery to enjoy on a boat ride...

Nestling at the heart of the Poitevin Marsh Inter-regional Park, between Niort and Aiguillon Bay, the Green Venice, or wet marsh, is a haven of peace to discover by foot, bicycle, boat or canoe. Located in France's second biggest humid zone, this protected natural area, full of peaceful, mysterious landscapes steeped in fairy-tales and legends, is a lovely place for daydreaming... Its mazes of secret canals, romantic narrow canals lined with duckweed, as well as its rows of ash trees, willows and poplars, give it a unique charm! An unmissable part of any stay in the Poitevin Marsh, Coulon, the capital of Green Venice, is a typical town with pretty houses, on the banks of the Sèvre Niortaise. It is the ideal starting point for a boat ride in Green Venice, and you will also find the House of the Poitevin Marsh there, an unmissable place for anyone who wants to get to know the history and secrets of this verdant territory.

You can also take a boat ride from the landing stages in the charming village of Arçais.

Two unmissable highlights: the traditional market on the water in Vanneau on the last Saturday in July, and the unusual rally in the marsh, the biggest nocturnal canoe-kayak event in France, departing from Coulon in the last weekend in June!

The marked paths in this beautiful forest of holm oaks and maritime pines make it an inviting place for a walk

The state forest of La Coubre, in Charente-Maritime, was planted in the 19th century to slow down the silting up of the Arvert peninsula, which was particularly exposed to the winds coming from the sea. Its 8,000 hectares of maritime pines and holm oaks unfold majestically and are highly biodiverse. The superb walk leads to the coastal dunes of the Arvert peninsula and with a bit of luck, you might spot a stag, a doe or a roe deer.

On the La Coubre headland, the two-coloured lighthouse built in 1904 in the municipality of La Tremblade marks the entrance to the Gironde estuary. It plays an important role as a sentinel on this tumultuous part of the coast. From the top of its 300 steps, at a height of 64 metres, you can admire a magnificent view of the forest and the wild coast. At the foot of the lighthouse is a museum dedicated to the history of lighthouses and their workings. A cycle path of 29 kilometres, from Ronce-les-Bains to Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, is a great way to enjoy this authentic setting, between forest and ocean!

An authentic island between beaches and forests

The mild climate of Oléron Island, the southernmost island on the Atlantic coast, has earned it the moniker "mimosa island". Yet beyond its sunny natural environment, there is plenty more to enchant visitors on this piece of land off the Rochefort coast measuring 30 km long by 8 km wide!

The place is renowned for its oysters, farmed in special ponds called "claires" in the Marennes-Oléron basin. In an oyster hut in Saint-Trojan-les-Bains, the Oléron Oyster Centre (Maison de l'huître oléronaise) offers guided tours of the oyster beds and tastings.

Access to Oléron Island is via its famous bridge spanning over 3 km, opened in 1966 and now free to use. Between superb sandy beaches and beautiful pine forests, there are many places to visit. Must-sees include the picturesque and lively fishing port of La Cotinière; the island's former historic capital, Le Château-d'Oléron, with its citadel offering a stunning view of the ramparts; the colourful huts on the beach at Saint-Denis-d'Oléron; and the Chassiron lighthouse perched on its rocky cliff, offering a panoramic view from a height of 46 metres. You can also see the century-old oyster farming village of Fort-Royer, the oyster farming site of La Baudissière and the Port des Salines in Le Grand-Village-Plage.

Two beautiful beaches vie to be the star attraction: Saumonards beach, on the east coast, and the big beach of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains. The forest is also ever-present, covering some 3,000 hectares with many marked paths. In Saint-Pierre-d'Oléron, the Oléron Island Museum presents the island's treasures to visitors. The island has many spots where you can enjoy water sports, and opportunities to approach the legendary Fort Boyard, its star attraction, by sea.

And if today we had fun around some Italian specialties? If you feel like it, head for rue Saint-Nicolas. We appreciate the setting, a quiet alley and of course the terrace, ideal for sunny days. We would like to advise you to book but it is not possible. One instruction; come early if you want a place. What a pleasure to be in a room decorated with red benches, wooden tables and inevitable products from Italy. We particularly like the machine that slices the thin slices of ham that are placed on the pizzas. The Petit Futé advises you more than strongly to choose one. Each is both fine and crisp and prepared with organic wheat flour. All are really good like the Speck (gorgonzola, mozzarella, speck) or the Courgette Coppa. IGP Gragnano pasta also deserves to be tasted because it is carefully prepared. In addition to the essential spaghetti bolognese, there are stuffed pasta, hand made and tagliatelle with two cheeses made from organic farm eggs. Among friends, you will surely want to enjoy plates of cold cuts with ham of Parma, mortadella, coppa... If the dishes are hearty, do not leave without devouring a dessert.

A stone's throw from La Rochelle, the small port of Plomb, devoted to oyster farming, sets the scene. Opposite the Breton port, are spread out along the sea of ​​tiny huts of colorful fishermen with a breathtaking view of the island of Ré, nearby.

This is where Marc Antony and Julie Morillon, jazz musicians set their bags. And if the place knew then a change of ownership, nothing has moved, or almost, since years.

Generous, greedy, and unpretentious, this is what could sum up this atypical place, anchored in the local landscape. A little guinguette at the edge of the cliff. A little bit of the world. The place has remained in its juice, a large fireplace for winter evenings, the beautiful terrace open on the ocean sheltered from the wind. We come here to enjoy the charm of the authentic, the warm welcome of the owners, the smiles of the waitresses, and the cuisine... delicious.
