About the neighbourhood
Matha is the local market town which is only 5 minutes drive from Bagnizeau. In Matha you will find supermarkets, banks and a variety of other local shops. We are approximately 30 minutes drive from the historic Saintes & Angouleme - both with character, things to do and plenty of shopping.
