Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Maybe you could be forgiven if the name of Chasseneuil sur Bonnieure is not on the tip of your tongue when thinking of holidaying in France. But local evidence show an extensive prehistoric history here and if you were around 2000 years ago, during the time of the Roman Empire, then it would have a very important significance indeed. Those very ingenious highway engineers, no slouches at being soldiers or empire builders either, made Chasseneuil, then named 'Cassanoialos', one of the most important crossroads across France and down to Spain & Italy etc. They built strong paved roads for heavy traffic and marching armies, originally designed to last a 100yrs Traces of these ancient roads still exist locally even now. Today, Chasseneuil sur Bonnieure, a small but bustling Town, continues its links with ancient times as visitors find, just as the Romans did, that it is a perfect location for touring South West France and its beautiful villages , historical sights, many wonderful attractions, plus superb coastlines. Chasseneuil sur Bonnieure was a resistance Town in WW11 and has retained its proud memories of those who sacrificed so much for their Country with a monument overlooking the Town and multi national cemetary.

With four airports in easy reach, Limoges, Poitiers, Bordeaux, Cognac serving the UK, Europe and beyond. Major rail networks, (Chasseneuil has its own railway station), with direct routes to Limoges, Angouleme, including Euro star and connections with the West coast-la Rochelle, Royan and north to Paris/UK. The Town has close links to the major Auto routes. The N141, A10, N10, A20 so even when just passing on your way South, East ,North or West Chasseneuil is a great base point .Head in any direction, short trip/ day trip, you will find a destination to suit your interest and budget. No fools those Romans!
