Plan d’eau in Poitou-Charentes

Here is a list of some of the Plan d’eau in this region. I have subdivided it into the different departments.

This is very nice with parking close by and a restaurant.

  1. We love the Plans d’eau all over France. They are beautiful places to stop for the day and many have facilities for motorhomes and we can stay overnight. Thanks for this. I’ll save it for future reference. 🙂
