Maison des paludiers

In the heart of Saillé village, LA MAISON DES PALUDIERS proposes 2 guided tours to discover the thousand-year old secrets of the «SEL DE GUERANDE».

ECOMUSEUM TOUR (1 hour).
You’ll be sitting or half-sitting during this tour.
It begins with the museum and an explanation
by a salt harvester of how a salt pond works
through the use of a large model, and ends with
a movie on the big screen (8 m) to see the work
of a salt harvester over a one year period.

TOUR OF A SALT POND (1.5 hours).
A salt harvester will explain the extraction
process to you. Follow the seawater from the
marsh creek to where salt crystallisation takes
place, the crystallisation pond. You will see the
gradient, subtle adjustments and if the weather
allows, taste the «fl eur de sel» hand-picked in
front of you.

The visit ends with the screening of a film.
