The Poitou-Charentes region
The little-known Charente Limousine region is both historic and beautiful. Frontier country for centuries from the times of the Romans via 12th century Richard the Lionheart to the Resistance in the Second World War with history, stunning chateaux and sites of interest to match. Equable climate means that although warm in summer it's not sizzling and the lush countryside around the River Vienne sets the idyllic scene!
For history lovers, you can visit the incredible Roman Baths at Chassenon, Follow Richard the Lionheart along his battle route via the fantastic castles of La Rochefoucauld and Rochechouart to Chalus where he was mortally wounded. The Resistance memorial in Chasseneuil tells the story of wartime bravery.
Colourful markets at Piegut - 35 minutes (every Wednesday - not be missed) and Chasseneuil on the 22nd of each month, Local vineyard at St Sornin 20 minutes and of course Cognac for brandy tastings about 45 minutes. Comprehensive list of attractions/fairs/fetes on our website
The Velo Rail in Roumazieres - bike powered rail cars taking you through lovely countryside as far as Confolens to the North (fantastic Folk dance and music festival each August)
The Lakes of the Hate Charente (15 minutes drive) are stunning where you can enjoy water sports, walking and bird watching.
Golf - two excellent golf courses within 30 minutes drive

"Great place. Great hosts. Great value."
Beautiful gite, thoughtfully presented and lovely and clean. Owners Robin and Heather did all they could to make the holiday enjoyable, maintaining a low profile and respecting our privacy but always happy to book restaurants for us or give advice on places to visit.
Robin's meals were amazing - it was lovely to have the option of a meal ready for us at the end of the day, we particularly recommend the beef bourgignon!
It is a lovely quiet location to relax and unwind and a beautiful area - we loved visiting the chateaux e.g. at Rochechouart and generally absorbing the French culture and pace of life. Only drawback...coming home!!
