You have toured Paris. You have seen the landmarks. Now, you want to learn about another and perhaps more "real" France, and experience life in a stunningly beautiful architecturally intact provincial city: POITIERS. The next three pages have information and photos about our apartment and the city.

The modern apartment, 5th floor, in a large building with elevator

Note: In France, this building is upright!
Romantic bedroom

Double bed, large dresser, window opens onto Rue Carnot, one of Poitier's main streets.

Kitchen -- for cooking delicious dinners when you don't want to spend money in restaurants

Great stove / oven, large refrigerator, small table for breakfast, good counter space.

Living room, the window looking out on the tile roofs of an ancient city

The couch is a bed, and sleeps two adults. The living room area near the kitchen is for dining, with an oval table that seats 6.

This is Rue Carnot, the bustling, vibrant street your apartment faces.

Notre Dame Church, Ornate Romanesque architecture. Poitiers has, in fact, 2000 years of architecture to explore!


Le Palais de Justice, a medieval and exquisitly proportioned structure with a baroque facade.

One of many statues in Blossac park, replete with lovely gardens, allees, a zoo. This park is 5 minutes from the apartment. This statue is also upright in Poitiers!
