The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
This part of the Charente has its own micro climate and is second only to the Cote d'Azur in terms of number of sunshine hours.
Charente is famed for its double-distilled brandy (80% is exported). Its popularity seems to grow - supporting the local economy and the prosperous town of Cognac.
Surrounding Cognac are rolling vineyards & quiet villages dotted with mini chateaux - the properties of wealthy Cognac producers.
A good place for walking and for a chance for a refreshing swim, head to the pools of the river Antenne.
The cathedral city of Angouleme is well worth a visit with its stunning cathedral and quaint, narrow streets.
Riverside leisure park within 3 minutes drive-safe bathing lake with a sandy beach,plenty of things to keep the kids happy.....and free admission!......even a bar for the big kids!
Another safe bathing lake with sandy beach at Brossac Lakes, some 15kms away. Only 20kms from Aubeterre, officially recognised as one of the prettiest villages in France , with its famous monolithic Church.
Lots of local restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
Our local restaurant offers a lunchtime 5 course meal, including wine....for 12 euros! Or, for a special occasion you could try the Internationally renowned restaurant in the Chateau, very reasonably priced.
Plenty to do in the area for all ages........or simply laze around the pool
