This villa lies in the heart of a quiet farm village in the Charente department, around half an hour stroll to the banks of the river. It’s also just a 30-minute drive to the vibrant city of Angoulême (with its TGV to Paris in just over two hours). 

There are some wonderful walks straight from your doorstep, through rural farmland in the surrounding area and along the Charente river, a peaceful spot to watch wildlife in incredibly tranquil surroundings. Visit nearby châteaux to sample and purchase local wine and discover local markets selling all sorts of fresh produce and regional delights.

Hire canoes or kayaks along the Charente river in the nearby town of Mansle, around 11km away. Mansle itself is a picturesque town with restaurants and shops – head to town for the twice-weekly morning market and look out for festivities taking place in the summer. There are many marked trails around the town and beyond through the glorious Charente valley which is classified as one of the EU’s Natura 2000 nature protection areas.

Pretty villages and impressive historic sights can also be discovered across this beautiful region. Visit the interesting medieval gardens in Tusson or spend time admiring the château in the village of Bayers. Verteuil-sur-Charente is a delightful riverside village with an ancient moulin and picturesque castle which could perhaps be combined with a visit to charming Nanteuil-en-Vallee, a classified ‘village of character’. A visit to the typically French town of Ruffec is a must on market day, on the banks of Le Lien.

Heading towards the Périgord-Limousin Natural Regional Park, the spectacular Château de La Rochefoucauld is another great day out for all ages.

Angoulême is a handsome city full of history and art in a lovely setting above the Charente river. Enjoy its ancient citadel, traditional markets and atmospheric places to eat – this beautiful place is both chic and unspoilt. There’s also the fantastic National Comic Strip and Image Centre and of course the famous Le Circuit des Remparts, an international classic car race each September. You can drive to Angoulême in around half an hour or catch a regional train, taking around 15 minutes, from a local train station about 8km away.

Jarnac and Cognac are also fine places to visit for the day where you will find excellent restaurants, historic architecture and fine Cognac and brandy tastings.

You can even spend the day at the seaside in Royan, just over a 90-minute drive away.
