Poitou-Charentes

 

If you are searching for Holiday Homes in Poitou-Charentes we have a selection for you to choose from.

Poitou-Charentes was a former administrative region in south-western France but from 2016 it comes under the new region of Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes. It comprises four departments: Charente, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres and Vienne. Historical provinces are Angoumois, Aunis, Saintonge and Poitou. 

Poitou-Charentes is a very popular place with British second home buyers and there are quite a lot of Brits who own holiday Gites in the area. It is easy to see the attraction with great transport links and a very warm and sunny climate due to the Gulf stream.

It benefits from warm temperatures on a par with the more southerly French destinations and the coast line areas gets a great deal of sunshine.

The coastal area is very popular with British tourists with La Rochelle, Rochefort and Royan being particular favourites. Other places in the region that are well worth a visit include Saintes, Saujon, Saintonge, and the regional capital Poitiers. Poitiers is has some great churches if architecture is your thing.

There are too many places of interest to possibly list them all here but if you have a car or motorcycle whist in the region it's a great place to explore.
