Fontaines-d'Ozillac is situated 270 miles (435 kilometers) southwest of Paris, the national capital.
Of course, visiting just one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow glimpse into the broader personality of a region. So be sure to explore Poitou-Charentes' other cultural and natural attractions. Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire, lies roughly 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the southwest. Go there to visit the St Mathias Church and Barbezieux Castle.
About 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest of Fontaines-d'Ozillac is Saintes, an important regional center home to Saint-Eutrope Church, Saintes Amphitheatre and Saintes Cathedral. Abbaye aux Dames, Arch of Germanicus and Musee d'Archeologie are just a few of the other visitor attractions on offer here.
If you are after things to do inside, head to Poitou-Charentes' history museums and art museums. These are great spots to soak up some of the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps pick up a gift or two. Whether you're believer or an atheist, visitors are sure to find a little enlightenment at Poitou-Charentes' cathedrals and other holy sites.
Joining one of the winery tours, city walking tours and cycling tours can be a good way to gain a deeper understanding of Poitou-Charentes.
You'll be reluctant to say "Au revoir / À bientôt" (farewell) to this memorable part of the world.
