The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Charente Limousin is an unspoilt region in the SW of France renowned for its sparkling lakes and rivers, rolling hills, fields of sunflowers and woods teaming with wildlife. The climate is warm and sunny where Spring comes early and Summer lasts long into September. Sleepy villages tucked away are far removed from the hustle and bustle of modern living, yet the lively cities of Angoulême and Limoges are within a short drive.

The region is famed for its production of Cognac and Pineau, Charentais melons, chocolate, Charente-Poitou butter, goats cheese and seafood from the Oléron basin.

The demarcation line of the Second World War between free and occupied France meant that there are connections with the strong Resistance activities in the area.

Follow the route of Richard the Lionheart with many interesting chateaux and villages to see along the way.

Le Lindois

Just 15 minutes from the beautiful Lakes of the Haute Charente where you can enjoy the pleasures of the inland beaches, watersports, birdwatching, walking and cycling. Not to mention the thrills of the aerial swings, climbs, and rope jumps through the trees at Massignac Adventure Park.

Montbron is a pretty local town offering a variety of shops and restaurants. Tour the winery at St Sornin and try the local Pineau. Hand-made clogs, Charentais high-fashion slippers, pottery and canoeing on the River Tardoire.

Make a point to browse the famous market at Brantôme set on the river Drone with its monastery and interesting craft shops carved out of the rock.

See the beautiful chateau set on the river Tardoire at La Rochefoucauld.

Visit Limoges - the red city - famed throughout the world for its enamel and porcelain production.

Angoulême - Comic strip capital of the world with an international festival in January.

Plus a vintage car race around the ramparts over 3 days in September.

And don't forget to savour the menus at the host of restaurants, chateaux and auberges set to tempt you.
