Poitou-Charentes

Poitou-Charentes

La Vienne is the largest department of the Poitou-Charentes but is characterised by a population average. It offers beautiful natural scenery combined with many historic buildings and areas. The area is popular among the British, many of whom arrive there because of the similarity in landscape to that of the south west of England and the attractive house prices. The department’s motto is “Tomorrow belongs to you” and the average annual temperature is around 12 degrees centrigrade, offering an oceanic climate with milder winters and cooler summers than other parts of France, those who live there will tell you that it is a truly beautiful place to live and make the most of your life!
