About the neighbourhood
Charente Maritime reputedly has the second sunniest climate in the whole of France. The countryside here is beautiful with rolling hillsides covered in vines, extensive walking, horse riding & cycling trails, forests, historic towns & villages and bountiful local produce.
Our local town is Montendre, a settlement has been here since before Roman times. It has a small ruined chateaux on the hill in the centre of town. A walk up to the Chateaux tower & ramparts is rewarded with beautiful views over the town & surrounding countryside. Nearby are the vineyards of Bordeaux, St Emilion & Cognac, beaches of the Cote Beaute & Charente & Dordogne rivers.
Getting around
Getting around is easy here on quiet rural French roads. Whether it be by car or bicycle you will find good quality roads, very light of traffic. If you enjoy walking or off road cycling there are hundreds of 'chemin blanc' (white roads), chalk based farm tracks and the many 'voie verte' (green ways), usually old railway lines, now tarmacked for easy cycling & walking.
