The historic city of Angoulême is approx 25 mins drive and a little further, the cognac region.
The lacs de la Charente are only 13 mins drive and the music festival at Confolens normally takes place Aug/Sept each year. The chateaux at La Rochefoucauld is well worth a visit with a chance to dress up in medieval costumes. There is a water park/leisure centre at Angoulême.
