The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Vienne region
The Poitou-Charentes is reputed to be the second sunniest region of France after the Cote d'Azur. The local people are very welcoming, especially if you try out your French. Poitiers has a lovely old centre, lots of restaurants and shops. Angouleme has it's ancient ramparts to explore and Cognac has it's distilleries to tour and compare brandies. La Rochelle on the coast has a wonderful old port with many fish restaurants, and the walled centre with little alleyways and many shops must be visited. The aquarium at La Rochelle is one of the best we have seen. The RN10 runs down the border with Deux Sevres and on to the border with Charente, so you can visit three departements in one day! Limoges porcelain is renowned throughout Europe.
The Poitiers area
There are so many things to do and see in the area that a folder is provided in each gite with information for everyone. As an example, La Vallee des Singes is nearby, Futuroscope at Poitiers - a must see, l'Ile aux Serpents, Zoodyssee, the war memorial village at Oradour-sur-Glane, Velorail at Roumazieres and Confolens, and so much more.
