Route details

Cultural, Nature (fauna, flora)


Located on the old royal road Poitiers-la Rochelle, the town of Epannes is located on the route of a Roman road linking Poitiers to Saintes. It is located in the Courance Valley. For a long time, life was organized around the river and its driving force. In Poitou, the name “courances” is given to streams that are heavily dependent on rainwater. On the Courance several artificial reaches supply the neighboring villages and the river will take other names such as La Mère, Le Vivier and La Petite Ronde.
