The beautiful unspoiled region of Poitou-Charente is located south of the Loire valley and extends down as far as the Perigord region. It is second only in its warm climate to the Cotes D'Azur making it the second hottest region in the whole or France.It is a region of undulating countryside interspersed with gorgeous rivers and lakes. It is dotted with historic towns, fabulous architecture and charming villages, but in spite of all its rural charm the region still manages to offer its many visitors lots of activities to suit all tastes, including such places as the amazing Futoroscope, the theme park that is loved by children from 9 to 90!
Why not come in August, visit the nearby town of Confolens and experience the wonderful international music festival concluding with an amazing firework display set on the River Vienne that wends its way through this most beautiful and lively town renowned for its fine bars and restaurants.
Our local village of Le Vigeant is a small community overlooking the beautiful Vienne river and although slightly off the beaten track Le Vigeant still offers an amazing amount of diverse activities including canoeing,fishing , swimming, horseriding, windsurfingand every weekend throughout the summmer ,bungee jumping.
There are also excellent walks and cycling routes. Just a little further, 4 kilometres is the delightful little town of L'Isle Jordain with its array of cafes, bars and shops including a large supermarket, garage ,petrol station and bank.
