Poitou -Charentes Atlantic Coast

The Poitou -Charentes region in the southwest of France includes the departments of Deux-Sevres, Vienne, Charante-Maritime and Charante. The turbulent history of the area left a legacy of rich architectural and cultural heritage. The pilgrimage route in the Middle Ages to Santiago de Compostela left impressive Romanesque churches such as those at Poitiers and Parthenay. The Atlantic coastline and endless sandy beaches are an attraction to this area, while inland the lush countryside offers fine architecture, navigable waterways and the finest wine and brandy.
