Our Region

So much to see and do

The beautiful region of Poitou Charente is crisscrossed
by waterways and an exceptional network of cycle routes,
the ideal way to explore Parthenay and its surroundings,
the Thouet valley and the Marais Poitevin with your family.
Alternatively, take a stroll through one of the local medieval
towns and village and sample some of our many local food
and drink specialities which include foie gras de canard,
natural apple juice, cheese and locally reared meats.
Parthenay is also close to Futuroscope, the Puy du Fou theme
park, Doué zoo and La Rochelle aquarium. Games fans will
love FLIP, Parthenay’s international games festival held every
year in July, and the chance to play over 3000 different games,
open to all free of charge
