The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

A beautiful, green, lush area with many lakes, woods and rivers. Traditional rural France with a rich history.

The Vienne is situated in the Poitou-Charentes region of South West France. The climate is the second sunniest region of France after the South of France.

L' Isle Jourdain is considered one of the most beautiful towns in the Vienne Valley. The viaduct provides a lovely walk and you can also watch bungee jumping at weekends! It is also the town that caught our attention when house hunting and we wanted to be close to it.

Other towns close by include Confolens (20mins) with the beautiful Vienne river running through. Montmorillion with its gorgeous ancient streets and bridges running over the Gartemp up to a huge church sat on top of a hill looking over the town.

Nearest Cities include Poitiers (regional capital) Angouleme and Limoges, all worth a visit.

To be honest nearly every village, town and city is beautiful and ancient and worth a stop off or visit.

There There are many swimming/beach lakes in the area, the nearest within 20 mins drive and the very large Lac St Pardoux is 50 mins drive through beautiful countryside with a choice of 3 sandy beaches, water slides, water sports etc

We love the swimming lake at Romaziers, approx 45 mins away. Its fabulous for kids, its sandy right into the water. There are changing rooms, toilets, showers and a snack bar. Its truly like a day at the beach!

La Rochelle, Ile de Re etc approx 2hr away. There is an outdoor pool in L'isle Jourdain open in the summer months and a public indoor and outdoor pool approx 20 mins away at St Junien.

Val de Vienne race circuit offers an exciting oportunity to see everything racing from power bikes to VW beetles to Ferraris!

Oradour sur Glane is a fascinating and humbling experience and well worth a visit. A WWII village that has been preserved. A visitors centre introduces you to its history then walk around the village. Approx 25mins

Confolens has a wonderful festival in August celebrating tradtional culture around the world, very colourful and exciting.

Futuroscope is a fantastic day out, just outside Poitiers, an amazing technology experience or 3D & 4D cinemas, fun rides and childrens park, a really great day out, highly recommended.

Monkey Valley, approx 50 mins away, is a really great day out. Spend a day walking through the monkey areas and sit watching gorillas only a few feet away from you. We love it.
