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.

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.

                                                              Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable en famille, la maison est vaste et permet à chacun de trouver sa place.L'ensemble est très bien équipé, que ce soit pour l'intérieur ou l'extérieur, on ne manquait de rien.Cette maison de caractère a plusieurs atoûts ,les pièces sont spacieuses et le jardin très agréable (écureuils lézards, canards, chouettes et de multiples oiseaux nous ont tenus compagnie).Les environs permettent des ballades à pied ou en vélo.Et nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'eau et les arbres qui entourent et traversent la maison,ce que apportaient de la fraicheur pendant les fortes chaleurs , nous avons eu 15 jours de soleil total, le rève ! L'acceuil par Peter et Elma était très sympathique et souriant, nous avions demandé le repas d'accueil confectionné par Elma, c'était pas cher ,copieux et délicieux.Bref une adresse à retenir absolument pour les vacances.
