Travel Guide to Poitou Charentes Province

Set on the Atlantic coast, between the Loire Valley and Bordeaux, lies Poitou-Charentes, one of the sunniest parts of the French western coast. 

It has a mild climate, with around 2,250 hours of sunshine per year, which makes this region a very desirable place to visit anytime from early spring to late autumn.

With approximately 482km of coastline with fine sandy beaches, backed by fragrant pine forests and lively resorts such as La Rochelle this area can provide attractions to tempt anyone.

Poitou Charentes Province of France

Inland, the scene is one of tranquillity with vast open spaces through to wooded valleys, the canals and the valley of Vienne, to the foothills of Charente and the Cognac vineyards.

The Poitou-Charentes region has much to offer the tourist from walks along the coastline, investigating the towns built beside fortresses and ramparts, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the marshland known as the Marais Poitevin or at the other end of the scale, experiencing the thrills and excitement of image technology at the Futuroscope.

Cognac, the drink that is named after the town of Cognac in France, is a brandy produced in the region surrounding the town, and you can taste some very fine examples throughout the Charente, Deux-Sevres and Charente-Maritme departments.

Many of the cognac producers in the town of Cognac and the surrounding area also allow visitors not just to taste their product, but have guided tours to show visitors how the cognac is made.
