POITOU-CHARENTES TOURIST SIGHTS AND PLACES TO VISIT

Poitou-Charente is on the western coast of France, facing the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Biscay. It is made up of 4 department regions, Deux-Sèvres to the north, Charente to the south, Vienne to the east and Charente-Maritime to the west. Poitou-Charente has so much to offer the visitor with so much to see,do and enjoy.

The Charente, where the Le Bois de l'Eglise is situated, has a reputation of quiet area where you can explore the rural area far from the crowds. There are great places to visit such as Angoulême with its ramparts and its captivating city centre with a mix of old and new and the unexpected , Cognac, with its focus on the famous brandy, Confolens which is home to the Festival de Folklore and Aubeterre-sur-Drone with its fascinating underground church.

Vienne is where the regional capital Poitiers is situated. The historic centre of the city with its historic buildings, street cafés and boulevards is a great place to explore and shop. If you are into action rides, time machine and dancing robots then a trip to Futuroscope is a must for children of all ages. Other recommended places to visit are the medieval market town of Chauvigny, with it's five ruined castles and Anglles-sur-l'Anglin set on the river overlooked by a ruined castle and officially one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The most important town in the department is the former medieval port of Niort on the Sevre-Niortaise river. The town boasts a huge 12th-century castle built by Henry II and Richard the Lionheart. Niort is a good base from which to explore the Marais-Poitevin. The region is perfect for exploring on foot, by bicycle or on horseback with hundreds of kilometers of tracks. At Coulon you can hire a traditional “pigouille” (punt) with a boatman to explore the canals and marshes and he will tell you about the marches and its plants and animals. Moving on, the medieval centre of Parthenay is worth visiting, with its cobbled streets leading to 13th century ramparts and a drawbridge with twin towers.
