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.

                                                              We stayed in Villa Bannick for two weeks last August with another family. There was plenty of room for two families (3 children between us) and an Au Pair. The children loved the garden and the pool. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed, beds were very comfortable and the showers were good. V easy access to Aubeterre. Only request would be to have a drinks fridge in the pool house!

                                                              My family and I stayed here at the end of July and had a fabulous holiday. There were 7 adults and 6 children and we all thoroughly enjoyed the week. The house is spacious and the kitchen is massive. The beautiful garden is perfect for the children since it is self contained. We spent a lot of time at the property, playing hide and seek in the garden, table tennis, badminton, swimming, BBQs etc. The house is clean and there are 2 dishwashers which is a bonus with a big crowd. The owner is on site in a little house at the front which was handy for questions (e.g. when I needed a high chair). At the end of the week we really felt we had got away.
