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.

Great Location Excellent hosts

5 of 5
Spent a week house hunting in the area and travelled over 1000 miles throughout the week. It was great to get back each day to such a relaxing atmosphere. Faye and Scott were the perfect hosts and went out of their way to help us with advice and guidance. The resident ram helped us to dispose of excess bread each day and we were given a guided tour to introduce us to the rest of the animals. The weather wasn't too good as it was early April, but that didn't matter because it was so relaxing and once we got the log burner fired up warm and cosy.

Shani and Paul could not have been more accomodating and we had a great break. Nothing anyone could do about the weather in March!
