Spending a holiday in Poitou Charentes is discovering and enjoying an incredible number of different landscapes: the Atlantic Coast offers its fine, sandy beaches, its superb islands (île d’Oléron, île de Ré, Fort Boyard) and its famous oysters. Le Marais Poitevin is a true haven of peace and nature with its green « venice » and its « Baie de l’Aiguillon ». La Rochelle, a fortified city with the towers of its ancient port, is a dynamic and festive town. The vineyards of Cognac, through which runs the Charente river, alternate with châteaux, churches and charming villages. Finally, the Poitou Charentes is home to the Futuroscope in Poitiers, a popular theme park with great family attractions.
