Favourite winter things to do in the Poitou-Charentes

Lovely weather! But in case anyone was in need of a new year pick-me-up, I was wondering if anyone had any great ideas for things to do in the PC over the winter months. Discovered a fab museum? Or a great walk? Or something else you really enjoyed? I recently when to the abbey at saint savin to see the lovely frescoes. Have lunch before or after and it’s a really enjoyable day out.

Thanks John for that very handy tip! Wrap up warm for the spectacular, though!!

Hi Rachel

Futuroscope are offering half price admission from the 12th of Feb for residents of the Vienne (proof needed at the kiosk). The evening "spectacular" is good.

sounds good, Jo, thanks. did it include a lovely meal too?

I recently went on a free bus-trip from Vitalis buses in Poitiers…it was a great afternoon and evening and I never would have beleived so much could be interesting about one commune of Poitiers…they had one trip each month in a different commune. The tour was led by a theatre group which made it very entertaining. These tours are available often apparently but I don’t know where from yet… well worth a try even if you have to pay I’d say
