About the neighbourhood
Les Capucines is only 20 minutes from the gorgeous Atlantic beaches to the West and a few minutes more to the historic old harbour town of La Rochelle as well as the glamorous offshore islands of Isle de Re, Oloron and Aix.

Along the Charente to the East you will find a number of historic towns including Saintes, with its rich Roman heritage, and Cognac with its brandy houses such as Remy Martin, Martell, Ottard as well as the fascinating cobbled town centre.

On arrival, you will find your gite fully stocked with brochures for all the local attractions together with recommendations from the owners and previous guests for many local shops, restaurants and markets.
Getting around
With its fantastic motorways nearby it only takes just over an hour to get to the amazing city of Bordeaux and then onto the nearby vineyards of St Emillon. They will also take you North to the Medieval Town of Tours and the chateaux of the Loire Valley.

Alternatively you can take a more leisurely drive through the beautiful countryside of the Charente-Martime and rolling hills of neighbouring Dordogne.
