The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Charente is famous for its sunny micro-climate. The countryside is undulating, growing sunflowers and grapevines. Producing its own famous delicious drink 'Pineau', a very nice aperitif. The way of life is relaxed and local people are very friendly.
The west coast of France is about 1.5 hours drive away. There you will find pretty white sandy beach and parts with high waves; good for surfing! In the other direction there is Arcachon known for its waves and blue sea.
There is a beach and lake with water sports and indoor/outdoor pools in Angouleme and other lakes with beautiful beaches at Brossac (10mins) and La Jimaye (30mins).
Everything you need is 5 minutes away at Montmoreau, local Carrefour supermarket, boulangeries, pharmacies, newsagents, bars, restaurants, banks, post office etc etc. The local market, 10 mins away, at Chalais on a Monday sells everything (including live chickens).
Bordeaux - 90mins, St Emilion - 60mins, Cognac - 50mins, Royan 90mins.
And last but not least there is Aubeterre! (10mins) Voted one of France's most beautiful villages, Aubeterre is most definitely worth a visit.

"Tranquil and home from home"
We had booked a holiday much father north in France and with the pending dower weather and lack of interest in the area we decided to make a break further south and return to the Dordogne hopefully, We happened on this accommodation in the Charentes region with availability at short notice and we were glad we did as its a gem of an area.
We were lucky enough to have the Gite to ourselves so it made the experience very pleasant and tranquil and thoroughly enjoyed the surrounding nature literally all around us (wild deer and birds in the fields and woods next door) and some days we just sat outside with a quick dip in the pool, others we travelled 40min to cognac or St Emilion or locally to Auberterre. There are plenty of places to visit near by which are tourist friendly but not over crowded in june so make for a nice french experience.
The Gite its self is well equipped (we had the grand gite for 4 nights) and specious and has a great shower and bath, The bed is extremely comfortable and we both slept very well. The TV has UK channels but took a while so sort them all out to a more usable list , its a bit annoying having to look through 12 regional variations of ITV before getting to the next channel. The Gite was very clean up arriving and we had a little furry friend with us and he was made very welcome too.
We were greeted with a welcome pack which was excellent, the home made jam was to die for and i managed to secure an extra supply from Roz when leaving (thanx). Del and Roz's hard work with these Gite's really does show and we would recommend a stay here if you want to RELAX as we certainly did. This area is a hidden gem and a worth alternative to the much loved Dordogne.
We did stay one night in the Bon Nuit as we decided to stay on the area for one extra night (the grand gite was booked that night) and found this to be well equipped but a little too small, with it backing onto the owners accommodation it was quite loud and didn't feel very private but perfect for one night.
Thank you so much for all your kind words and feedback. Just to say normally Bon Nuit has extra sound insulation between the barn and the gite but due to the one night stay this didn't seem practicable
