Poitou-Charentes: a spectacular holiday

There are many reasons that Poitou-Charentes is a wonderful place to spend your holiday. It is the sunniest spot in western France with the most sunshine hours per year and an average temperature of 26 degrees Celsius. A wonderfully stable climate.
The region meets the ideal image of France: a beautiful landscape, picturesque villages, cosy terraces, a relaxed atmosphere, not to mention excellent regional cuisine.

Sightseeing in the Poitou-Charentes

Poitou-Charentes is known for its variety of tourist activities and activities for children. Around the park, there are nice villages in the accented landscape, each with its own character. If you drive a little further, you will reach La Rochelle and Ile de Ré on the coast. The vast wetlands of Marais Poitevin are also very popular with their leafy creeks.

The larger towns like Parthenay and certainly Poitiers and Niort are definitely worth a day trip. Experience the atmosphere of a French city, the many restaurants with terraces, the boutiques, the cultural events and historical places, the bustling nightlife.
