  • Great Location in Amboise!

    "Six of stayed in the "penthouse" apartment at Villaconcorde. Great location. Castle Amboise is directly across the street! Great view and convenience to both the castle and the rest that Amboise has to offer (which is considerable)! Living area, kitchen and downstairs bathrooms are very nice. There is only one negative: The "loft" bedroom and bathroom are attractive, but the low, slanted ceilings are a challenge for people who aren't very short. That room might be best for children about age 6 to teens. The owner was very friendly and helpful in arranging taxis for us. The wine they have available is excellent!"

  • An excellent choice in Beaune!

    "We stayed here after completing a 750km hike along the Chemin de St Jacques and it was a welcome rest. The apartment was completely as advertised and the booking and access process was flawless. We arrived and found a bottle of wine on the table and an excellent supply of maps, booklets and instruction books to familiarize ourselves both with the specific apartment and the area. The location was very central and the unit has been totally updated and renovated to current standards. Additionally, it was clean, well maintained, and supplied with all of the basics to get us going before a quick shopping visit to the market or store. We invited another couple to join us for this part of our trip and the layout was excellent for two couples, with the large bedrooms on opposite sides if the apartment. Also, the toilet and the shower areas were totally separate so using one didn't tie up both. We enjoyed many of the local restaurants with our favourites being Ma Cuisine, Le Ciboulette, Bacchus, P'tit Paradis, and Le Relais. This is a highly recommended location for two couples, or parents with one or two kids, as there is one room with a queen bed and the second has two doubles."

  • A true paradise

    "When we arrived at the Villa we thought we had arrived in Paradise. We had a very warm welcome from Roger who took the time to make us visit the entire property and explain all the amenities to us. Also very informative on the surrounding markets, place to see etc... We had a wonderful vacation. Quand nous sommes arrivés à la villa nous avons crus être arrivés au paradis. Roger nous a reçu très chaleureusement et nous a fait visiter toute la propriété en nous donnant toutes les explications des facilités de l'endoit. Il nous a aussi donné toutes les informations nécessaires pour le shopping, les places à visiter etc... Nous avons passé une semaine extraordinaire."

Poitou-Charentes Travel Tips

Poitou-Charentes Vacation Rentals on the Sunny Atlantic Coast of France

Poitou-Charentes is located on the Atlantic coast of France, between the Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions. It benefits from an oceanic climate and is one of the sunniest areas along the coast, with moderate summers and warm winters. It has over 300 miles of coastline, with excellent beaches and wonderful ocean villages and towns. Inland, it is region of woodlands, valleys, canals, and famous vineyards. The region is divided into four areas, referred to as departments -- Charente, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sevrés and Vienne. The regional capital is Poitiers.

Poitou-Charentes accommodations include a selection of hotels, bed and breakfasts, inns and vacation rental properties. Many visitors here choose rental properties for the wide choice of homes available, the benefit of more space than in hotels, and facilities such as a private pool. Renting a home provides visitors with the opportunity to experience French living, in towns or villages across the region.

Poitou-Charentes Accommodations Are Surrounded by History

Charente-Maritime is the most popular coastal vacation area. One of the most famous towns for Poitou-Charentes vacation rentals is La Rochelle. This historic coastal town dates from the 17th century and is one of the charming port towns in France, with a wealth of attractions for visitors. The old town area, around the harbor, is of particular interest, with fascinating architecture and monuments. The town is known for its fish restaurants and the harbor area is a nice place to stroll in the evening. Along with wonderful shopping, there are an excellent natural history museum, aquarium, and a small beach. For those who enjoy bicycling, there are numerous paths and areas for biking. From La Rochelle, visitors can take a variety of boat trips to many places, including several islands, such as Ile de Ré, a wonderful village with great beaches and a unique atmosphere or Ile d’Oleron with excellent beaches and a beautiful chateau to explore. Also nearby is Ile d’Aix, famed for its prison, dating from the French Revolution, and a house built by Napoleon which is now a museum.

In the area of Charente is the town of Cognac, whose major product is the popular liqueur of the same name. Visitors here should not miss the opportunity to buy a bottle or two! Visitors to the area will also enjoy the village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. A carefully renovated village, it is known for its white stone houses and a spectacular 5th-century church, hewn from the rock. The town is set on a steep hill, overlooking the Dronne River.

The regional capital, Poitiers, located in the Vienne department, is an interesting town with spacious boulevards and a maze of streets with charming shops and cafes. The abbey at Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe is a world heritage site and a famous attraction of the area. Chauvigny is a medieval market town with three castles. Close to this town is Angles-sur-l’Anglin, known as one of the most beautiful villages in France. For families, a must-see is the local theme park, Futuroscope. Children will enjoy the rides, giant movie screens, and dancing robots.

The fourth area is Deux-Sevres. Much of this area is ideally explored by boat, for its canals and marshland. Here, visitors may enjoy the Melle, a lively town with three 11th- and 12th-century churches.

Regional Specialties of Poitou-Charentes

France is a delightful country for food lovers, and each region has its own specialties. Due to the coastal location of Poitou-Charentes villas, the regional specialties are mainly seafood, such mussels in white wine or cream and a delicious fish soup. Other dishes such as Poitou lamb and Chabichou are both common on many restaurant menus. Naturally, cognac is a local beverage as well as good local wine.

Poitou-Charentes Villas for Fabulous Local Souvenirs

Both La Rochelle and Poitiers are great shopping opportunities. Visitors looking for local souvenirs may want to consider the region’s most famous export, Cognac, or the local wine, pineau des Charentes. Another regional specialty is the wonderful cheese, such as brebis d'Oléron, bûche du Poitou Chabichou du Poitou, Chabis, Chavroux, chèvre du Poitou and faisselle.
