Situated in the south west of France, the Charente enjoys brilliant weather and an agricultural area with stunning landscapes, fields of sunflowers and a variety of activities for all ages.

The attraction to this area is the accessibility to other regions and places of interest within this region. With great proximity to Angouleme, Cognac, Bordeaux and Limoges, this area is central to airports, transport and many holiday activities. It is the perfect spot for cycling with cycle tracks in the region as well as low traffic volumes. Relax, rejunevate and discover the real France.


Villefagnan is a small french village with more than the usual amount of shops. It is very well cared for and offers a quiet village lifestyle.

There are twice weekly markets, a swimming and fishing lake and various other attractions in close proximity. There is an abundance of tourist attractions, animal parks, golf etc in reasonable driving distance from the village. There are also some beautiful villages in close proximity including Vertuil sur Charente with its riverside location and picture postcard Castle and Nanteiul en Vallee.

Your holiday can be as busy as you like or a relaxing retreat is also possible. Hire a bike and discover the area or lounge in the back garden.

"Once again an absolute delight in rural France"

We decided to return to Chez Sophie after our shorter stay in 2013. The house still felt like home and I suspect it will continue to do so, considering the improvements and additions that the owners keep making to it. The newly installed pool was very, very welcome during our 2,5 weeks there. The temperature of the water varied from 20 degrees (pretty cold) to 26 degrees (comfortable). The garden could benefit from more comfortable chairs and an umbrella. The bedrooms could use more storage space.
But having said that, we absolutely adore this house and the village it is in. Quietness, peace yet friendly French and amenities literally around the corner.
Special appreciation for Sylvie and Mike. Thank you so much!
Would recommend to anyone and will definitely return in the future.

"Very pretty cottage, nicely decorated, comfy beds"

The cottage was very nicely decorated and furnished. As all upstairs floors were wood it may have been more comfortable to have a couple of rugs on the floor. The second bedroom had only a chest of dr… More

Thank you for your review. Now that weather has cooled we will look at rugs and have also sourced hooks for doors and storage options. Thank you for your suggestions. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

"Perfect little French getaway"

Wonderful house in a French village with nearly all the necessary amenities. The house itself is beautifully decorated. The garden is a big plus; lots of privacy and space. We had very nice weather when we were there, so we practically lived outside. We suspect that when the weather is less good, that the house would be on the small side for anything over 4 people. We did miss a dishwasher, which we expected to be in a house so well appointed (towels, toiletries etc are included). Furthermore, the ceiling of the kitchen is very low. My husband is 1.94 m tall and really had to bend down all the time. This is not a problem anywhere else in the house, however.
Big thumbs up to house manager Silvie who lives just around the corner.
Villefagnan is a sleepy village with two bakers, two small supermarkets, a pub et cetera. Very convenient. Ruffec (larger) 10 minutes' drive. Very English oriented area.

Many thanks for your kind comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay,
Chez Sophie
