It is a "pocket" of wet marshland on the edge of a limestone plain and hemmed by a border of bocage. It is located in the eastern part of the Marais Poitevin, on its southern edge. Its main axis is made up of the large gully of Port Goron and the Amuré gully.
It is made up of two groups: 125 hectares of bocage marshland to the east and 40 hectares of wooded islets to the west. Its ecosystem is varied: wet meadows, megaphorbia (tall grasses on wet peat) with meadows, sedge meadows (rugged grass) and ash woodland. It is inhabited by marsh spurge, ophioglossus buttercup, marsh fern; marsh copper, alpine rosalie; genet and European otter. [More information on the PDF file]
