Chez D'Aigre is a peaceful hamlet hidden in the gentle rolling countryside of the Charente Maritime, an area blessed by high blue skies and, they say, more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in France apart from the Cote d'Azur. It's an ideal place for relaxing; for gentle cycling through fields of giant yellow sunflowers, or take a picnic to a nearby lake Les Gours and have a swim.
