The Atlantic coast of the Poitou-Charentes Region is surrounded by four beautiful and unique little islands. The isle of Ré, the white one, the isle of Aix, the authentic one, the smallest of them, the isle Madam and the isle of Oléron, which is the shinning one. The isles of Ré and Oléron are the bigger ones and both of them are well connected to the French coast by a bridge. The bike path that you will find here are very well prepared. Welcome to the ‘Cote de la Lumière’ because of the bright shining light and the ‘Cote de la Beaute’ because of the beauty.

The most important town within the department is La Rochelle, situated deep into the bay and still today protected by the ancient fortresses of the 18th century. Another positive aspect of the region is its mild climate on the Atlantic Ocean with about 2.600 hours of sun per year. The numerous marsh lands along the cost and on the islands are home of lots of different bird species and nearly everywhere you can find traces of the historic rivalry between the French and the English kingdom. The impressive fortresses of the royal architect of the King Louis XIV, Vauban are absolutely worth a visit. And finally this bike tour is also a trip to and through the high quality of French cooking. As we always use to say: Living like god in France.
