The airport at Poitiers is another of the small airports that France is so good at providing. Despite the small number of arriving flights it has a lovely restaurant which gives panoramic views over the fairly quiet runway. The airport also maintains the lovely French tradition of not charging for car parking between 12.00 and 15.00, lunch time parking remains free in this traditional part of France. You also need to be aware that there is no shuttle service to the centre of the town, only a taxi service. Car hire is available.
