Sleeping

Poitiers offers the best choice of hotel accommodation, with some attractive budget and midrange options.

Eating

Dining is traditional and Poitiers cooks up the best choice of family-run bistros and restaurants. Tasting local cheese – Chèvre du Poitou (goat cheese) and Chabichou (a nutty, goat cheese version of Camembert) – is a Poitou essential.
