Quiet retreat with ancient roots
Châtellerault is just north of Poitiers. It has a long history, linked with nobility of Poitiers, but today is a modest, quiet town. It can be walked relatively quickly and is very peaceful at night. I worked just on the outskirts of this town for a short assignment, so was lucky to explore the area at my own pace.
