Things to do

Charras is little more than a small, but picturesque village but the beautiful area surrounding Charras has been witness to plenty of history over the past centuries. The landscape is filled with old farmhouses, chateaus, and even several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Closer to the Atlantic Coast, a series of lovely towns and cities eagerly await visitors, including Angouleme.

-The Charente Valley offers rural France at its finest and can be explored in a number of different ways. One popular method is by taking a river tour. The region is full of so many vineyards, cycling trails, and rural villages, that visitors will never run out of places to explore here. The valley is a convenient drive from Charras holiday homes.

-Marais Poitevin is striking marshland and is what remains of the former Gulf of Poitou. Nicknamed The Green Venice due to its series of canals, the Marais Poitevin has been declared a regional park. Popular as a rural escape for visitors in holiday villas in Charras, it is best explored through its peaceful canals on a traditional flatboat. The area is still used for raising sheep and they can easily be spotted among the deep green marsh grasses here.

-The Comic Strip Museum in Angouleme is one of the more unusual museums in the region. The museum contains 8,000 original drawings and over 100,000 comic books and magazines, which of course all ties back to Angouleme’s long history with paper manufacturing.

-La Palmyre Zoo is situated over 44 acres, carved out of forest land in the 1960s and is now home to over 1600 animals. It is a bit of a drive from Charras but well worth the effort if you’re with the kids. The zoo offers visitors an opportunity to view several species of threatened and endangered animals, such as white rhinos, orang-utans, and Indian elephants.

-Futuroscope is an imaginative theme park located just 10 km north of Poitiers, and a great family-friendly destination. Convenient for families staying in Charras holiday homes, the park consists of thrill rides, live shows, and exhibits suitable for adults and children alike. Families could easily spend a day or two at this futuristic theme park.

Everything was perfect: the weather, the view, the grounds, the pool and the tennis. Such a peaceful and friendly atmosphere. Everyone was very helpful. Jo, the Manager, was great. The grounds are beautifully maintained by Lorraine and Mark. Such a lovely house, so nicely decorated and extremely well-equipped. Comfortable beds with plenty of good quality sheets and towels. There is so much space, that even though all the rentals were occupied, there was room for everyone and we always found a quiet time at the pool and played tennis every day. Lovely relaxed part of France with the beautiful little towns of Brantôme and Aubeterre-sur-Dronne within 45 mins' drive. The larger town of Angoulême (30 mins aways) not to be missed either. Packed with history and plenty of great restaurants. Looking forward to returning next year.

It far exceeded our expectations as the website details and photos didn't do it justice. It is brand new and fitted out to a very high specification. It is a well planned house with all you could possibly need and the location to the town and beach are just perfect. We would highly recommend it. If we were to be a bit picky, the garden needs some TLC. It is an absolute find!

It is fitted to a high standard and we good for a stay as a couple or with kids. We'll definitley be going back
