Angliers is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in the Poitou-Charentes region in southwestern France.



The commune is situated in a marshy area, which is drained by the small river Curé, that empties into the Atlantic Ocean.


The commune probably dates back to the Gallo-Roman times, but little of that era remains. Sarcophagi discovered in the nineteenth century might be more recent.
