Poitou-Charentes is a particularly varied part of France, which is known as the sunniest region of the Atlantic west coast. Even in the early and late season, temperatures are still very pleasant here. And although the Atlantic coast and the Côte d'Azur are clearly different from each other, there are indeed great similarities. Ile de Ré is even called the St. Tropez of the Atlantic coast. Rightly so, because the atmosphere of the harbor and houses are almost identical. The weather is usually fine here too, the sun shines on average 210 days a year here. If you want to take a trip to the coast, then visit the fashionable seaside resort of La Rochelle with its beautiful harbor and tower. There is also a beautiful boulevard with many cozy restaurants, where we - of course - can heartily recommend the many fish and shellfish dishes.
