The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Mostly Agricultural but with plenty to offer for Art, Music history and Architecture to name a few. There are markets during the day and sometimes at night and during the summer months it is not difficult to find towns and villages with free open air concerts or dancing in the streets with street vendors galore. There's plenty to do in this picturesque part of the world and here are a few suggestions...

The taste and tours in Cognac and have fun on a Gaberre (Flat bottomed boat)

The beautiful village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with it's vaulted underground church

The hilltop town of Angoulême including the Classic Car race round the Ramparts each September

La Rochefoucauld château and restored mills.

The Lakes of the Charente

Wineries and wine tasting tours

Take to the water and canoe or hire a boat on the Charente, it's a beautiful river with lovely towns and countryside on route.

Beaulieu-sur-Sonnette

The nearest village is Beaulieu about half a mile away; it is a quite sleepy sort of village set in the heart off the Charente. It has it's own friendly village shop open each morning and there is a supermarket open seven days a week in Champagne Mouton about ten minutes away. Nothing much seems to happens in Beaulieu, locals play boules on the village square on Tuesdays and Friday afternoons but generally the village has a timeless air to it which may remind some of us of times gone by.

This is life in the slow lane, rustic, quiet and the place to ramble or cycle in a safe environment. There are excellent affordable restaurants and bars within a shortish car ride and lots of unspoiled countryside to lose yourself in, on your doorstep, if you want to.
