The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Charente is a beautiful unspoilt area of France. Set in the heart of the Cognac vineyard region it is an excellent location to access many of the local towns and surrounding areas. The landscape is rich and varied with acres of sunflowers and vines. The climate is temperate and comfortable with an average temperature of around 25° but often reaching over 30°. We are ideally situated for visiting many of the regional activities of the area. Cognac is a 30 minute drive where you can visit many world famous distilleries. Or if you prefer, the picturesque vineyards of St Emillion are a pleasant hours drive away. Our nearest city is Angouleme inhabited from the year 600 and is the capital of the Charente. It is known as the "City of Festivals" set high above the old city walls with views for miles around. The festivals begin in January with the cartoon/comic strip event, the “Musique Metisses” in May, the classic car race and rallye, “Circuit des Remparts” in September and the piano festival, “Piano en Valois” in October just to mention a few. It is a lively and still very much "French" town with an abundance of excellent bars and restaurants for your pleasure.
Chateauneuf sur Charente is our closest town built in the plains and hills bordering the Charente with 3500 inhabitants. On market days Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays it is a place where people gather to sit and catch up in the local bars and cafes whilst leisurely shopping. There are two large supermarkets, three banks, chemists, bars, restaurants, doctors and a hospital. In the opposite direction is the town of Barbezieux St Hilaire which is larger than Chateauneuf with more restaurants a larger market and a hospital with an emergency department. Jonzac is just 15 minutes drive away where there is a large leisure complex with indoor and outdoor swimming, gym, solarium and spa. This pretty village has a market on Fridays and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to explore.
