Poitou-Charentes is bordered to the west by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north by the region and the capital of the region is called Poitiers. The nature in the region is very varied and therefore also very interesting. When you book a holiday home with us, you can certainly enjoy this varied nature. The varied nature also brings with it a varied flora and fauna, which is very nice.

The nature in the region can roughly be divided into two different habitat types. On the one hand, the east of the region consists mainly of vast forests and the west side of the region is formed by a long coastline with cliffs and beaches. Both different habitat types have their own flora and fauna that occur almost exclusively in this type of habitat.

Starting with the dense forests in the east of the region. The forests consist of conifers and deciduous trees. The coniferous forests are inhabited by long-eared owl, goshawk and various species of tits. In addition, these dense forests are home to various mammals such as wild boar, squirrel and roe deer. With a lot of luck you can also see a badger. But this is more likely to happen in the vast deciduous forests. In these deciduous forests you will also find a different composition of animals than in the coniferous forest. In the deciduous forest you will find bird species such as the eagle owl, green and large spotted woodpecker and spotted flycatchers. In these forests you will find other mammals such as pine marten and red deer.

The coastal strip is totally different from the forests in the region. Here you can especially for bird and plant species to your appetite. Along the different cliffs you have a good chance of seeing seabirds. Both on the cliffs and by sea you can observe birds that you absolutely do not encounter in the interior. Species that you can think of here include: shearwaters, guillemots, fulmars and petrels. Actually, you do need a telescope to be able to observe these birds.
