Paris, the national capital, is located 250 miles (402 kilometers) northeast of Loix.
It's recommended not to limit your tour to the points of interest in Loix because the surrounding region has been blessed with a wealth of wonderful sights and attractions. For something different, check out the St-Martin Harbor and St-Martin Citadel in and around Saint-Martin-de-Re, another place in France, some 4 miles (6 kilometers), from Loix. La Tranche-sur-Mer is yet another place worth checking out. Here you'll find the Church of La Tranche-sur-Mer and Griere Beach. La Tranche-sur-Mer is 8 miles (13 kilometers) away from Loix.
While you are staying in Loix, don't forget to make a day trip to La Rochelle. Approximately 14 miles (23 kilometers) to the east, this regional city is where you can find Maritime Museum, Musee des Automates and Musee d'Orbigny-Bernon. La Rochelle has much to offer travelers keen to linger. Musee du Nouveau Monde, Musee des Modeles Reduits and Tour de la Chaine are some of the other points of interest worth a visit.
The area around Loix is blessed with some wonderful churches, guaranteed to inspire all visitors, regardless of faith. If it starts raining cats and dogs, don't worry, Poitou-Charentes is home to a range of history museums and art museums, that'll keep culture vultures entertained and dry.
For those who like to get wet, plan to enjoy some watersports. Canoeing is popular and another great activity is swimming.
When it is time to depart Loix, you'll be sure to bid this region a sad "Au revoir / À bientôt" Rest assured, however, you'll be leaving with special photos, momentos and memories that are yours to keep forever.
