The region has strong historical links with Richard the Lionheart, and the French Resistance.

It is famous for cognac, pineau, foie gras and oysters.

Chateau at La Rochfoucauld Rochechouart and Etagnac. Situated close to the Route de Coeur de Lion.

Original functioning Roman baths at Chassenon.

Internationally famous Music Festivals in Cognac [July} and Confolens [September].

Ideal for day trips to Poitiers with the Futuroscope theme park, the French Atlantic coast with the Ile de Re and Ile d'Oleron, the Dordogne and Perigeaux National Park.
