Poitiers,France


Poitiers (Poitou-Charentes)
Where we are..

Poitiers is a town on the Clain River in west central France. It is a commune and the capital (préfecture) of the Vienne département and of the Poitou-Charentes région. The town is picturesque; and its streets are interesting for their remains of ancient architecture, especially of the Romanesque period, and the memories of great historical events.

Maire-Poitiers Town Hall


Poitiers Cathedral

Situated on a rocky promontory between the Boivre and Clain rivers, Poitiers is located in the Seuil du Poitou geographic zone which separates the Parisian basin to the north from the Aquitaine basin to the south. One hour from Paris by TGV, Poitiers benefits from an enviable economic and geographic situation on the Paris-Bordeaux axis.


"Parc de Blossac"


In the heart of the city, Poitiers' green spaces (Parc de Blossac, squares, Beaulieu urban park Botanical Garden, Rose garden, Prés Mignons park) are perfect places for Sunday strolls or weekday breaks.



Picnic at St.Benoit




These places for relaxing, strolling or playing sports also attract those who want to work in a natural setting or learn. Indeed, for those in the know these green spaces are full of rare specimens and valuable plant collections.

Ask any local what you might take home as a souvenir of the city. He will certainly answer with a solemn emphasis and tone: Macaroons of Montmorillon from Rannou-Métivier! Marzipan is the base ingredient for these macaroons, but Rannou-Métivier's have that little something more that has brought them years of fame, medals and rewards. But that's really all we can say since the recipe is a jealously kept secret..


Futuroscope
near Poitiers with its futuristic architecture and homage to the technologies of tomorrow. See 3D films on the giant ,flat, circular or spherical screens: Dynamic cinema, new video techniques and virtual pictures....

See Kinemax films on a seven stories high screen ! or 3 D shows ... a 360 ° film ...or the famous Magic carpet with huge screen under your feet... The unique park in the world where you can spend 1 or 2 days and nights seeing lots of fascinating non stop shows...:)
