The Poitou-Charentes region

Mostly Agricultural but with plenty to offer for Art, Music history and Architecture to name a few. There are markets during the day and sometimes at night and during the summer months it is not difficult to find towns and villages with free open air concerts or dancing in the streets with street vendors galore. There's plenty to do in this picturesque part of the world and here are a few suggestions...

The taste and tours in Cognac and have fun on a Gaberre (Flat bottomed boat)

The Velo-Rail in Confolens (try 'U' tube?)

The beautiful village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with it's vaulted underground church and restaurants.

The hilltop town of Angoulême including the classic car race round the Ramparts each September

La Rochefoucauld château and restored mills.

The Lakes of the Charente

Wineries and wine tasting tours

Take to the water and canoe or hire a boat on the Charente, it's a beautiful river with lovely towns and countryside on route.


The nearest village is Beaulieu about a mile away; it is a quite sleepy sort of village set in the heart off the Charente. It has it's own friendly village shop open each morning and there is a supermarket open seven days a week in Champagne Mouton about ten minutes away. Nothing much seems to happens in Beaulieu, locals play boules on the village square on Tuesdays and Fridays but generally the village has a timeless air to it which may remind some of us of times gone by.

This is life in the slow lane, rustic, quiet and the place to ramble or cycle in a safe environment. There are excellent affordable restaurants and bars within a shortish car ride and lots of unspoiled countryside to lose yourself in on your doorstep if you want to.

"Great for a quiet break, very comfortable, recommended"

We stayed in the smaller wing of the gite. Both wings are extremely comfortable and our dog had a great time with the acreage around the property. The hamlet in which the gite is located is about a mi… More

This is an entirely objective and fair review and we agree with the comments made. The guest's took advantage of our current discount for bookings made within two weeks of arrival and made their booking the day before arrival. They were model guest's and left the Gite and grounds as they found them, very clean and tidy. The flies were a nuisance that week for us and many of our local friends as well and we believe this unusual occurrence was linked with the fact that we had had a major wind storm (Tornado) a few days prior with 100MPH winds. The unusual phenomenon eased off a day or so after the guest's left and we assure future guest's that this is not a normal feature of the property. The comments about the BBQ and the micro wave have been taken on board and will be actioned for future guest's. We would welcome these guest's back any time.
