Deux-Sèvres, Atlantic coast and Loire Valley, France

Château des Forges


The Poitou-Charentes region is blessed with a micro climate which as you can see from the heat map to the right is very similar to that of the Mediterranean.

While sunshine can never be 100% guaranteed, mild weather conditions are the norm, and in fact the Château des Forges basks in the second sunniest region of France after the Côte d'Azur.

Mild winters, early spring and long summers.
