Poitou-Charentes Tourism

Among its treasures Poitou-Charentes offers Roman ruins, long sandy beaches along the Atlantic coast, the marshy waterways of Marais Poitevin (the second largest wetland in the west of France) and of course Cognac; the after-dinner favourite.

The illustrious story of Poitou-Charentes can be told in the Roman ruins at Angouleme, the medieval houses and 18th century homes of ship-builders and traders on the Atlantic Coast at La Rochelle and by following the colour-coded signs around the vineyards of Cognac.

With 450km of coastline, there really is something for everyone in Poitou-Charentes. And the oysters of Marenne-Oleron are said to be the best in France.

Choose the Atlantic coast or Cognac Country.
