The town of Montmorillon in Poitou-Charentes is best known for two features; its literary traditions including the book fare, which takes place every two years, and the invention of the Macaron - a sweet confection made from almonds. The Cite comprises the restored medieval part of town which is full of famous landmarks such as Notre Dame and its Crypt of Saint Catherine. Hiring a car in Montmorillon is certainly worthwhile as there are a host of small towns nearby to explore and delight in. Saint Savin, Poitiers and Chauvigny are all nearby. Car hire in Montmorillon is available from the town itself, La Rochelle and a host of arrival points across western France.
Montmorillon is a hugely picturesque town due in a wonderful setting on the banks of La Gartempe River which is straddled by the atmospheric Vieux Pont, to complete the scene, the rustic Old Palace claims a place right on the riverbank nearby.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
