The south Charente is known as the ‘Tuscany of France’. You can see why, as you discover this beautiful area.
These homes are in the middle of small towns surrounded by vines within walking distance of everything important to your daily living requirements. They are old stone houses in keeping with their neighbors on the outside, yet comfy and with all modern conveniences on the inside. You can hear the church bells chiming on the ¼ and the hour (during daylight hours), which is one of the special things about being in the middle of French and indeed European villages. They are rural working towns and as such there are many noises associated with daily life. Enjoy being a part of it.
