EXPLORATION

Discover the real France

The Poitou-Charentes region of France offers an envious mix of things to do and places to see while largely remaining off the beaten tourist track.  Based at the Château des Forges, you really do have the opportunity to experience the richness of the region and ‘La France Profonde’

La Rochelle


This magnificent harbour town on the Atlantic coast is a wonderful destination for a day trip.


Don’t miss the excellent aquarium, the atmosphere of the harbour at night, the restaurants where you can sample the inimitable 'Plateau Fruits de Mer', not to mention the attractive beaches.

Poitiers


Poitiers is a medieval town steeped in history, not least the Battle of Poitiers, a major battle of the Hundred Years' War between Edward the Black Prince of England and John II of France.


Now a University town, it has a magnificent cathedral, as well as a lovely historical centre. Cosy terraces are situated on the various squares and the students create a convivial atmosphere.
