Location: 

Poitiers is the capital of the Poitou region and is only a few hours from Paris by TGV (high-speed train). Located in the west of France, Poitiers is in close proximity to the Loire Valley, dozens of charming chateaux, an excellent wine region, and Basque country just to the south. The Futuroscope--part interactive learning center, and part theme park--is located just outside Poitiers and pays tribute to the technologies of multimedia in several wildly imaginative pavilions. Normandy, Brittany, the French Riviera, the Alps, London, northeastern Spain, and northwestern Italy are all within half a day's train travel.
Today, Poitiers is a center for education, agriculture, industry and communications. A university town, it boasts a population of 120,000 and offers students a chance to live in a manageable-sized city while still being close to larger metropolitan centers in France. Many in France consider it the smallest of the big cities – une ville à taille humaine.
