Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

La Roffie is a tiny hamlet consisting of three farms, of which this house is one. Both other farms are active and the French neighbours raise cattle, hens and grow wheat, maize and grapes. The Charente is fairly rural as well as being one of the sunniest areas in France.

There are Roman remains at Chassenon to visit, the route of Richard the Lionheart passes through nearby villages and is marked. More recently it is significant as a place where the resistance was active during the the war, and there are monuments and tours to celebrate this movement.

The Charente region is well known for its Cognac and the less well known Pineau. Cities / towns to vists include Cognac, Limoges, Angouleme and Brantome.

Lesignac-Durand

There are restaurants, bars, post offices, bakery and butchers shops in Lesignac-Durand and the nearby villages of Massignac and Suris. The closest larger towns of Chabanais and Roumaziere-Loubert have more shops and supermarkets and regular SNCF rail services with links to all major cities.

Local activities and attractions include high tree climbing in the adventure park (1km), canoeing on the Vienne (4km), swimming / fishing / sailing wind-surfing on 'Les Lacs de Haute Charente' (4km). There are lots of other places to swim including the Nautilus water park in Angouleme and the freshwater pool (with lifeguard) at Roumazieres (7km) is great for children.

There are pretty towns with chateaux to visit at La Rochefoucauld and Rochechouart. Oradour-sur-glane is well worth a visit. This village was destroyed by the Germans during the war and has been left untouched since that time. There are lots of local markets which run weekly and the monthly bigger 'foires' include the ones are Chasseneuil and Peigut. The annual Festival of World Cultures is on in Confolens in August.

There are golf courses at St Junien and La Preze. The entire area is surrounded by hiking and cycle trails.
