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. The narrow, yet tall spire elegantly towers over La Gartempe River and forms the Centre Ville section of town where you'll find the odd eatery, bar, and restaurant. 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.

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.
