poitou charentes mapSure, telling a group of your friends and neighbors you're planning a vacation in Poitou-Charentes would leave a stony silence in the room, but the region of France offers you La Rochelle (yes, I know, another silence, a bit of forehead scratching, but it's the third most visited city in France!) and the area around the Charente river is Cognac country. There are pilgrimage trails and Romanesque churches, Roman ruins, and Marais Poitevin - a sort of bayou without the alligators, a "green Venice" you can boat around.
