Poitou-Charentes regional description
This is the most northerly part of South West France and has both wonderful coast and countryside. It's most famous town is probably Cognac where the world renowned drink originates. The area offers a huge range of activities from boating, surfing, wind surfing, walking, cycling, fishing through to horse riding.
Charente Maritime department
Charente-Maritime is the most westerly department of the region and offers wonderful stretches of coastline, with long sandy beaches and fishing ports. It is an up market area with La Rochelle and Ile de Re the more known coastal spots. The area has one of the sunniest climates in France and is only second to the South of France. Inland from the Charente-Maritime, we find the Charente. The area offers a more rural lifestyle than its neighbour. The countryside is undulating, scattered with pasture land, sunflowers and offers wide open views. The beautiful Charente river meanders through the department bordered by beautiful villages and markets towns.
Charente, Deux-Sevres & Vienne departments
The Deux-Sevres & Vienne departments are slightly more rural than the Charente and the least known departments of the region. They are characterised by the rolling countryside, rivers and a way of life that has changed little over the centuries. These areas offer the cheapest property prices. Access to the area is excellent. Airports include La Rochelle, Angouleme, Poitiers and Limoges. There are also TGV fast trains into Poitiers, La Rochelle and Angouleme. Motorway access is also very good.
