Local Attractions

Swimming fun – right on the doorstep are the very popular Grand Lacs de Charente, where you can swim, go sailing or ride horses.  Haute Charente has the largest lake area of Poitou-Charentes.

The cottage sits almost equally distant between Angouleme and Limoges ~ 45minutes in each direction.

The nearest large town is Rochechouart at just 10km away, with all the amenities you could wish for including restaurants, shops (including two small supermarkets) post office, chemist, small museum, chateau and more.  Apart from the stunning chateau, there is a church which has a very rare, twisted, roof spire.

If it is modern history you are interested in then Oradour-sur-Glane is a must place to visit. The original town was destroyed on 10 June 1944, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS company. A new village was built after the war on a nearby site, but on the orders of the then French president, Charles de Gaulle, the original has been maintained as a permanent memorial and museum.

Known as ‘the land of green hills and woodland’ everything is around you, waiting to be discovered; it is perfect for those of you who love  cycling, walking or running holidays in France.  With 25000 acres of water in its lakes and rivers it is perfect for swimming, water-sports or fishing.   And, if you want to get a real birds-eye-view of the area you can even take a hot air balloon ride, which often departs from the local lake.
