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.

The Weather in Charras

Charras enjoys mild weather from March to November. Even in the summer, high temperatures rarely exceed the low 20s. The region gets a moderate amount of rains, though the summer months are typically dryer. December, January, and February are typically the three coldest months out of the year.

Getting to Charras

Between La Rochelle Airport and Bordeaux-Merignac airport, visitors to Charras holiday villas have plenty of transportation options. Both airports receive flights from London and several other major cities in Europe, and they each offer car hire services. It is also possible to take a train from Paris to Charras. The journey will take approximately 3 hours.

Our idea of Paradise!

5 of 5
Once again we had a great time, apart from one day of rain we have had perfect weather, nothing has been too much trouble for our hosts Sarah & Steve, with only butterflies to accompany us on our walks thru the local woods, staying in this well equipped Gite has been idelic & we can’t wait to return again next year!

Fantastic break!

5 of 5
Spacious and clean accommodation especially the outdoor terrace area where we had all our meals; well fitted modern kitchen with large dining room; pool was a bonus especially in the heat as was the lovely grounds. Great place to just relax and unwind,read books, however if you wanted to be a bit more active then the table tennis and mountain bikes were available. So helpful that Lax was on hand if we needed any assistance. We will definitely be returning! Thank you!
