Poitiers, city in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, is a town with a population of about 100 000 inhabitants. It is renown for both its ancient history and for the theme park Futuroscope.
The town benefits from an excellent location since it is only 1 hour and 30 minutes from either Paris by high-speed train TGV, the beaches of the Atlantic coast (La Rochelle, l’Ile de Ré, l’Ile d’Oléron, les plages de Vendée,…) or the Loire valley and its castles.
