Paris, the country's capital, is located 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Montmorillon.
When it comes to getting the most from your precious vacation time, it's worth keeping in mind that Montmorillon is just the tip of the iceberg; Poitou-Charentes is home to a treasure-trove of scenic delights. Saint-Julien-l'Ars, lays 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, while Ruffec is located 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest.
Poitiers, is another good place to explore. It is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Montmorillon and offers a number of interesting things to see, like Place du Marechal Leclerc, Parc de Blossac and Poitiers Cathedral. Notre Dame La Grande, University of Poitiers Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy and Musee Sainte-Croix are some of the other attractions that should be included on everyone's schedule.
Poitou-Charentes is a good spot for travelers with an interest in open-air markets. Visitors looking for quiet places to reflect upon life's great mysteries, will relish visiting the region's many churches.
Take your own gear or rent it locally, and make the most of the region's water sports. Sailing is a popular activity. Another one is canoeing.
When your time is up in this unique place, say farewell the way locals do, with a heartfelt "Au revoir / À bientôt."
