Lifestyle & heritage

If you wish to get to know better the french gastronomy, lifestyle and heritage sites, you should absolutely visit the french Atlantic Coast.

You could take a closer look at the many glamorous chateaux in the region and let yourself be carried away by the beauty of their gardens. Also, do not miss to visit Ile-de-Ré where you will be enchanted by the small old villages, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France.

Fascinated by French Romanesque art? You would certainly enjoy exploring the pilgrims’ route to Santiago de Compostela and the abbey church at Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe, both part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list.

Poitou-Charentes also hosts a lot of events throughout the year. If you happen to be in the region in September, you can even witness a series of car races in Angoulême, known as the Circuit des Remparts. For their part, summer holidaymakers would have the possibility to taste the famous fine French spirit during the Fete du Cognac, held usually at the end of July.
