Poitou-Charentes is nestled on the French Atlantic Coast and offers much in the way of family holidays and fun.
Enjoy a visit to Poitiers, the capital city of the region, with its extraordinary architecture and historic monuments, along with plenty of child friendly hotels. Visit the castle in Chauvigny and watch the eagles, owls, buzzards and parrots fly over your heads or have fun at the Château de la Rochefoucauld, where the kids can dress up as a prince or princess. The whole family can enjoy a velo rail ride along a disused railway line in the area through the beautiful Charente countryside.
Another attraction for the whole family is Futuroscope, which offers 25 experiences including dynamic cinema and 3D cinema, along with the chance to watch “Arthur and the Minimoys,” a 4D adventure created by Luc Besson. Children can enjoy the Children’s World play area during the day and in the evening the family can sit down to enjoy the Lady Ô show, an amazing firework show incorporating special effects, all set on an aquatic stage.
Head off with the family to the Massignac Adventure Park for an exciting treetop circuit or enjoy water sports and swimming in the lakes at Haute Charente.
For those who enjoy strip cartoons, a fascinating visit can be made to the Musée de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême. The city is unique for the full colour cartoon scenes by Franquin, Zep and Morris, painted on the sides of the houses.
With Poitou-Charentes offering much in the way of baby friendly accommodation, the region is a fun and enjoyable location for a family holiday.
