Airvault is in the much-loved Deux Sevres region of Poitou-Charentes in western France which features on the Santiago de Compostella pilgrimage route. It'’s notable in many circles as being the potential origin of Voltaire'’s pseudonym, but more importantly for visitors to the area, it'’s a magical town surrounded by like-minded rustic villages such as Montreuil Bellay, Saumur, Moncontour and Thouars. Deux Sevres is a treasure trove of archetypal rustic French towns and anyone who takes up car hire in Airvault will delight in touring the local countryside. Hiring a car in Airvault is available from the town itself as well as arrival destinations such as Nantes Airport.
