The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
Poitou-Charentes' inland has also plenty of assets. The Marais Poitevin (marshes) are often dubbed 'France's Venice' (some tourist guides call it the "Green Venice"). The serene and lush expanse of fields can be explored by rowing boat or kayak along the canals built by eleventh century monks.
The town of Cognac is a popular place to visit. Here visitors can sample the world famous brandy and learn about the distilling process. Close to Poitiers is the Futuroscope theme park where cinema and special effects are pushed to their limit whilst providing an educational experience. They allow the visitors to project themselves in the future thanks to an innovative visual technology. It is also said to have the biggest screen in Europe.
With 2,200 inhabitants, Chef Boutonne is a very small town located in the central western part of France, to the south of the Deux Sevres department. It is also very close to the border with other departments of the Poitou Charentes region, namely Charente, Vienne and Charente Maritime.
The peculiar assets of the area are its rural identity and local traditions along with the fact that its location is central. Indeed, Chef Boutonne is just 80km from Poitiers, 100km from the coastal resort of La Rochelle, 40km from Niort and hardly 60km from Angouleme. An ideal starting-point to discover the region's assets. The name of the small Deux Sevrienne town comes from the neighbouring Boutonne River.
