Make a holiday rental villa or gite in Charente, France your home away from home

Charente, a landlocked department in western France, is at the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region, surrounded by Vienne, Dordogne, Gironde and Deux-Sevres. It is a peaceful, rural area with sweeping vineyards and graceful chateaux.

Things to do in Charente, France

Activities available from a Charente gite are mostly outdoor orientated. There are four magnificent golf courses in the region, ranging from the vineyard bordered golf course in Cognac to the hilly course of Angouleme.

The countryside also creates the perfect place for walking and rambling through the thick forests, open rolling hills, limestone cliffs and waterways. These can be explored not only on foot, but also on horseback, bicycle and canoe. There is no better way to refresh after a tough days exploration than going for a quick dip in the Charente River or one of the numerous lakes, upon which rowing, windsurfing, fishing and swimming flourish.

The rivers and lakes of Charente are fishing havens. Carp, bream, trout, perch, gudgeon, catfish and roach, to name but a few, can be caught in Charente, and cooked using traditional techniques in a self catering Charente gite or holiday house.

On a cultural level, there are numerous castles, chateau, abbeys and museums which adorn the countryside, giving an unparalleled understanding of the region to visitors staying in Charente accommodation.

Only downside was we had no internet for our three day stay. The property was lovely and clean and the bread, wine etc. in the fridge was most welcome.

The setting is beautiful and the house is spectacular. Loads of room and given that there were 14 people around the place, it still felt spacious and open. The pool is great, the pétanque court in excellent condition and with the addition of the new fire pit, we were able to keep ourselves amused and warm long into the night. Bike hire was excellent, golf course was a huge amount of fun and the woodland restaurant divine. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

All exactly as described by the very helpful owners. Peace and tranquillity to your heart's content, but lovely village just a few minutes' drive away with bar, restaurant, pharmacy, bakery etc, and a great little supermarket. Lovely area to explore, with other villages/towns within 15-30 minutes' drive, and of course the wonders of the Dordogne within reach too, but frankly it was such a fantastic spot that we enjoyed just swimming, playing and relaxing at the house for by far the majority of the time. It was a very special holiday and we (Mum, Dad & teenage son & daughter) made some lovely memories. The view is still etched in my mind, but I very much hope to see it again for myself one day. One final note: check out that night sky!
