About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
The Charente is one of the sunniest regions of France with long summers. It is famous for Cognac but also produces the lesser known Pineau de Charente.,which is similar to Port.
One can visit the Cognac houses of Martell and Hennessey as well as Courvoisier at Jarnac or Cognac. Details of visiting times are available from the tourist information offices.
Futuroscope at Poitiers (1hr) is a great day out for all the family. The Martyrs village at Oradour sur Glane is about 45 min away near to Limoges
The beaches at Royan ,the National Maritime museum at Rochefort and the old town of La Rochelle are all about 1 to 1.5 hrs by car.
Ruffec is the main town in the area around the small village of Couture. It is a market town with an attractive square with pavement cafes and a market held every week.
The gite is set in the countryside about 10km from Ruffec and about 15 km from La Rochfoucauld with its magnificent Chateau.,open to the public. The village of Verteuil also has a chateau overlooking the village but only the grounds are open to the public at present. However Verteuil does boast a pub with music during the summer months and a good Bistro the Porte Bleu.
If you are feeling active canoes are for hire on the Charente at Mansle,try the velo rail or the adventure park at the lakes. There is also a public swimming pool at Mansle and a beach area at the lakes( about 30 min drive ) or at Angouleme where there is also an indoor pool complex.
There are also a range of other activities available in the area, tennis, fishing, golf, quad bikes,horse riding , cycling or just good old walking the quiet lanes and tracks.
Full information is available from the tourist information offices at Ruffec or Mansle. http://www.lacharente.com/
