The surroundings

View

The “Charente” is a stunningly beautiful yet fairly undiscovered area in the Southwest of France. It is characterized by pristine forests, fields of hay, sunflowers, picturesque towns and castles surrounded by vineyards that produce the region’s famous cognac and pinot wine. Luckily, it has yet to be discovered by mainstream tourism.
There is lots of information available about excursions in the area. But here are a few of our favourites:


Aubeterre-sur-Dronne

Interesting cultural attractions:

  • The annual cartoon festival, held in January
  • Old-Timer weekend in September
  • Visits to world-renowned cognac distilleries
