Marais-Vernier (French pronunciation: ​[ma.ʁɛ vɛʁ.nje]) is a commune in the Eure department in Haute-Normandie in northern France.

The river ends with the Seine on the left bank near Quillebeuf-sur-Seine. It is isolated from a river by a ditch which was constructed by the Dutch.

Its landscape is used for farming while forests are founded on its hills and bogs and le Grand Mare where a number of species of birds are founded. Horses from Camargue and oxen from Scotland (Highland Cattle) are founded along with storks. The area also has cliffs keeping the village insulated and is made up of thatched cottages.
