Poitou-Charentes is a tranquil and largely unspoilt region halfway down the western coast of France. Its long Atlantic coastline has fine sandy beaches, pretty marinas and bustling resorts. The gastronomy and wine of the region (amongst which the famous Cognac) are quite renowned internationally.
There are a number of beautiful islands such as nineteen-mile long Ile d'Oléron which is popular with tourists and whose main industry is oyster catching. Another island, Ile de Ré is known for its salt marshes and is reputed to receive more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in France away from the Mediterranean. A bridge linking it with the mainland makes it easily accessible to outsiders, to the chagrin of residents who feel that the island's previous pleasant seclusion has gone and traffic has hugely increased.
On the mainland, Parthenay, a medieval town as well as other towns in the neighbouring Vienne department offers wonderful cultural holidays. Indeed, the area is full of chateaux, abbeys and vestiges of the glorious past of Poitou Charentes. Definitely a region to discover, as the motto says.
