Saint Savin is in the Vienne region of Poitou-Charentes, situated in the west of France. The town is known primarily for its UNESCO listed church - Abbey Church of Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe - which is Romanesque by design.

Saint Savin is a great place from which to explore the Poitou-Charentes region; Chauvigny is nearby and Poitiers is just beyond that. Hiring a car in Saint Savin is available from the town's industrial estate, La Rochelle and destinations across the region.
