About this location
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 beautiful village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with it's vaulted underground church
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 half 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 Friday afternoons 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.

"Classic cars and classic holiday."
We were a largish party (8) so booked both gites which are connected so that you can use them as one. Spacious, clean and comfortably furnished. Large dining table and chairs in gite 2 which meant tha… More
We are pleased to hear that our guest's enjoyed their holiday in Wild Acacia, they were excellent guest's and left the gite as you would expect to find it; clean and tidy. Our guest's in this case used the accommodation very much as a base from which to travel on a daily basis to and from the classic car racing around the ramparts in Angouleme; we have had larger parties who have also enjoyed the facilities but have preferred to use it as a static holiday venue because of the facilities that we have here.
We were pleased to provide them with good secure dry garaging for one of their classic cars that they had travelled down in as well as a couple of cooking utensils that they asked for to enhance their overall cooking and dining experience here.
It was good to see them clearly enjoying the overall experience here and we congratulate them on their significant successes in the racing events they entered. We would be glad to welcome them back at any time.
