Passirac is ideally situated to visit any number of places. Brossac is the nearest village at 3 km where you will find a range of small shops including a bread shop, butchers, SPAR, pharmacy and post office. There is also a bank with 24 hour cash withdrawal facility. The restaurant in Brossac is open lunchtime and evening and also offers a takeaway pizza service
At the Lake St Valier you will find a beach and a club house offering a variety of activities such as crazy golf, and squash. Food is also available. The other restaurant at the lake enjoys lovely views and is open lunchtime and evenings.
For a truly French experience a visit to Chez Poirier at Bardenac is a must. The fixed menu never disappoints, and it is very reasonably priced. Open lunchtimes only.
Aubeterre (23km) is officially one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has a monolithic church, well worth a visit, and the village itself is picturesque with several good restaurants. The nearby River Dronne has canoeing and swimming.
Chalais (12km) is worth a visit on Monday for its lively street market, selling everything from cheese to chickens. There is also a well stocked supermarket.
About 40 minutes drive takes you to Angouleme with its pedestrianized old town, cathedral and impressive Hotel de Ville. There are also museums and the opportunity to take a cruise on the Charente river.
Not too far to the north is Cognac with its famous distilleries which can be visited and where you can sample the produce!
