Poitou-Charentes Holiday Rentals France


The Poitou-Charentes is a destination with many attractions that will delight both lovers of nature and fine food.  Between verdant countryside and the Atlantic coast, this area offers beautiful natural sites such as the Marais Poitevin or the valley of the Charente. It also has a religious heritage of great wealth where Romanesque art predominates, and it hosts major cultural events such as the Francofolies, a festival of music. The extraordinary gastronomic richness of the region is expressed through prestigious products such as oysters from Marennes-Oléron or cognac.

The Marais Poitevin or "Green Venice" is a nature reserve on water leading to salt marshes as far as the Bay of Aiguillon, and then out at sea: the islands of Noirmoutier, Yeu, Ré, Aix and Oleron.  Places to see are La Rochelle, the old port, the towers, the beaches of the Atlantic coast, Niort, near the Marais Poitevin, its fortress (le Donjon), Poitiers in the Vienne, and Futuroscope which is a theme park about new technologies, notably cinematography.
