About this location

The Poitou-Charentes region

Poitou-Charentes is a tranquil and largely unspoilt region halfway down the West coast. Its long Atlantic coastline has fine sandy beaches, pretty marinas and bustling resorts. La Rochelle is one historic port well worth a visit .There are a number of beautiful islands such as the nineteen-mile long Ile d'Oléron which is popular with naturists and whose main industry is oyster catching. Another island, Ile de Ré is known for its salt marshes and is reputed to receive more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in France away from the Mediterranean.Poitou-Charentes' inland has also much to offer. 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. many distilleries offer guided tours with tasting opportunities. Close to Poitiers is the Futuroscope theme park . Much of the land is given over to the cultivation of sunflowers, maize and vines while there are also large wooded areas. On the 27th of each month Rouillac hosts one of the largest street markets in France. On the border with the Dordogne, Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with its steep lanes, tiered houses and unspolit centre is considered one of the prettiest villages in France.

Rouillac

Rouillac is known as the gateway to the Cognac area .It is surrounded by gently rolling countryside which is ideal for rambling and off-road cycling, There are several lakes with beaches and plenty of fishing and kayaking sites whilst horse riding can also be arranged. The historic towns of Angouleme and Cognac are well worthy of exploration. The Comic Strip Museum at Angouleme is particularly popular with visitors. There is an impressive Gallo Roman amphitheatre at Les Bouchards just a few kilometres outside Rouillac and many historic Romanesque churches throughout the area. Tusson ,the location of an ancient abbey and favourite holiday destination of King Francis I's sister Marguerite of Angoulême, is a charming village that has preserved its heritage and kept a number of beautiful old restored residences. Among them can be found Marguerite of Angoulême's lodge dating from the 16th century, which today houses the Maison du Patrimoine (heritage museum). Next to this Renaissance lodge lies a magnificent medieval monastic garden. There are many artisan producers of cognac and pineau who occasionally have open door weekends. Le Cep Enchante presents a small vineyard setting for a series of tableaux which explain the process of cognac manufacture.
