Imagine vast beaches, historic castles and lighthouses, romantic islands and the freshest seafood all packed into one holiday. Then visit Poitou-Charentes. Nestled on France''s western coast and with a lovely unspoilt interior, it''s a hub for lovers of the outdoor life.

The historic medieval capital Poitiers in fact offering 2000 years of history with quaint streets, charming squares, delightful gardens and the architectural masterpiece that is Notre Dame la Grande, one of the region''s finest churches.

Make sure you visit the medieval fishing town of La Rochelle. Guarded by the picturesque Vieux Fort with its twin towers, there''s much to see and do. Step on board historic ships at the town''s maritime museum or visit one of Europe''s largest aquariums. With 160km of cycle tracks, it''s easy to take a ride to Ile de Re or ''White Island'' across the toll bridge to visit some of France''s most beautiful villages.

For wonderful beaches you''re spoilt for choice. Visit the resort of Royan with five sandy bays ranging from secluded covers to acres of golden sand. If you like to get away from it all visit the car free Aix Island, and take a horse and cart tour to visit the house where Napolean surrendered to the English. Olreon Island is also another wonderful destination with no less than 25 sandy beaches and the famous Chassiron lighthouse. The Gironde Estuary is packed with charming fishing villages.

Poitou-Charentes also has much to offer inland. Marais Poitevin is known as France''s ''green Venice''. An extensive wetland, best explored by boat or bike, you can enjoy birdwatching, nature trails or outdoor adventures. Don''t forget to sample the area''s specialities.

The area also has some great leisure facilities including France''s biggest leisure park Futuroscope near Poitiers and La Palmyre Zoo.
