A tangled mass of small rivers and streams, glades and marshes, that have been colonised by the local residents and turned largely into allotments. Stroll at length by the riverside pathways and witness for yourself the love and care that the Bourgeoise have put into...More

We were told that it was worth wandering around this area - and it was! An amazing network of canals, river and allotments. Peace and quiet with birds and fowl. Magical!

So sorry you visit Bourges without walking trought the moors: le marais. Beautiful green area with small brooks and gardens. Many flowers and trees and birds. From a distance you can see the cathedral. Nice quiet...the flowers do speak a tongue..
