Local Area

We are near to the N10 between Ruffec and Mansle, both towns offering excellent restaurants, supermarkets, boulangerie’s, and outdoor markets selling wonderful fresh produce.

For the adventurous, there is white water canoeing at Mansle (approx 3 miles) or simply paddle down the Charente at a more sedate pace...

Angoulemé with its beautiful architecture, world famous annual comic strip festival, car race and its many shops and restaurants is only 25 minutes away.

Cognac and its historic distillery houses is about 40 minutes away and well worth a visit. We can offer a 2 for 1 ticket to go on the Hennessey tour. There's a Blues festival in July that attracts some fine musicians from around the world.

The Atlantic coast with its truly magnificent beaches is about two hours away - a visit to one of the many quayside restaurants at La Rochelle or Royan is an experience not to be missed.

Climate

The Charente enjoys a 'micro' climate and is considered to be amongst the sunniest places in France, next to the Cote d'Azur. April through to September are normally the best months. Although it is not unusual to be able to sit outside for a drink in November!
