Poitou Charentes Province of France

Taking a holiday in Poitou-Charentes region

Poitou-Charentes is a very unspoilt region with virtually no industry bar dairy farming and working the fields.

Because of its pleasant climate and warm sunny days, even though it is not quite as hot as the South of France, it is a lot warmer than the North and therefore makes an ideal getaway to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Holiday in Poitou Charentes Province of France

The coastline is perfect for tourism with its long sandy beaches, islands and marinas, so it comes as no surprise that this is a very popular holiday destination with Gites, hotels B&B's and campsites all along the coast.

Like all areas of France, the people of the Poitou-Charentes enjoy their food with regional highlights including excellent shellfish.

But away from the coast the landscape is quite flat and is used for agriculture and some wine growing, which also makes Poitou-Charentes a fantastic region for cycling even for the novice.

Also on offer are vineyards, and yes, who can go to France without tasting the local wines from the region in which they are staying.  But there are also castles, churches and ramparts for the more historically minded.

We are sure that you have also heard of Cognac, and yes, this is the region, although technically a commune in the French department of Charente, where it is produced, so why not even experience some of this whilst visiting the Poitou-Charente region. 

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