La Paisible is a delightful, fully renovated two bedroom house on the edge of this lovely village in South West France. With full central heating and a large woodburning stove it's cosy and comfortable - ideal for holidays or short breaks through the Autumn, Winter and Spring months. Retaining many original features it also has the advantages of a new kitchen, shower room and freesat tv.

In the summer months you can cool down at the nearby open air swimming pool or at one of the local beach lakes, and in the village the Vienne river offers fishing and kayaking. The area is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and bird watching; there are local chateaux and historical sites to visit; and if all that is too much there is a variety of local cafes and restaurants for coffee, lunch and dinner. An easy five minute walk takes you over the river and into the village for daily bread and groceries or to test out the bar restaurant.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Go to the Charente now before everyone else discovers this gem of a region.

Glorious unspoilt countryside, delightful towns and villages and the most friendly and welcoming of people.

The lakes of the Haute Charente and the Limousin are famous amongst the French for water sports and beaches.

The summers are long and hot, spring and autumn are glorious as the colours of the trees and flowers change.


You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do and see.

A couple of minutes from the house is a lovely walk along the side of the river, five minutes takes you over the bridge into the village for bread in the morning or a long cool drink at the bar in the afternoon.

Limoges and Angouleme, both lovely towns with ancient city centres are 45 minutes drive away - one to the East and one to the West. The Roman thermal baths at Chassenon are a 15 minute drive through Chabanais towards Rochechouart.

Confolens a very pretty town is 15 kms north, the martyred village of Oradour sur Glane is about 30 minutes towards Limoges and there are lots of lovely towns and villages with gorgeous châteaux.

If you fancy a change from driving there is a station in Chabanais with a rail service to Limoges, Angouleme and beyond. The TGV runs thorugh Angouleme to Paris or why not head south to Bordeaux for the day.

If the beach calls you can be in Royan or La Rochelle in a couple of hours.

Nearer to home there is an outdoor swimming pool at Chabanais or head towards Etagnac for a lovely leisure lake with a beach suitable for children.
