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. Within 25 minutes you would find yourself in Cognac with its world famous distilleries such as Remy Martin & Hennessey - visit one of the Cognac houses for a tour or you can try the local drink of Pineau at many distilleries throughout the villages or even the local Charentaise wine. There are many golf courses within 30 - 45 minutes drive and fishing is also available - hire a boat on the Charente - horse ride, walk or cycle through the beautiful countryside of sunflowers and vines. Just about a...
