The Poitou

Many English have found the Poitou-Charentes a lovely place to live. The good climate, friendly people and relaxed lifestyle are enjoyable for those who wish to be residents year round as well as holiday visitors and holiday home owners. Life is good for the English in the region but can be less than straightforward – combine a foreign language last practiced at school, the pace in the country, unusual customs and even more unusual shop opening hours can make it unsettling for those used to a UK town or city.


The Perfectpoitou website was written by Alistair Macleod (Technic-al) using a range of HTML and PHP software. It is designed to act as a resource for British expats in the Poitou-Charentes.
