A pretty and historic region, offering something for everyone
The Poitou-Charentes region attracts visitors all year round, who come to enjoy everything from the countryside and cycling on the lovely quiet roads, to great tourist attractions like Futuroscope and la Vallée des Singes.
History buffs, too, enjoy discovering such delights as Roman remains and medieval churches (we have one just down the road), or exploring the area's Resistance connections during the Second World War.
You will find wildlife abounds here: deer, red squirrels and boar are a common sight, and the native birds are enough to get any twitcher reaching for the binoculars!
As its name suggests, La Vieille Fromagerie was originally a small creamery, making goats' cheese. While that's no longer the case, little fromageries are still very common in the area, where you can buy traditionally-made cheese and even buy fresh milk in your own jug - something that vanished in Britain decades ago.
Chez Coudret is ideally situated for vising the area's many attractions, such as the Vallée des Singes monkey park just nearby, Futuroscope near Poitiers, and the vineyards of Bordeaux or the Loire as well as the distilleries and blending houses in the Cognac region.
Canoeing, swimming, bowling and archery are all available nearby, as well as traditional pursuits of walking, pétanque and cycling. We can arrange bike hire for you to explore the local lanes, which carry very little traffic (You'll be pleased to know that French drivers are also very considerate to cyclists).
For motor sport fans, the Valle de Vienne circuit is within easy reach, and Angôuleme's annual Circuit de Ramparts and its attendent rally attract historic cars and fans from all over the world.
The area is home to many species that you simply do not see in the UK, such as nightingales and hoopoes, tiger moths and swallowtails, lizards, deer and wild boar.
For those who like slithery things, snakes and salamaders can also be found if you know where to look.
Walking or cycling in the quiet lanes is a great way to see the area's flora and fauna.
The village of Brux boasts a church dating back nearly 1,000 years - the exact date of construction is unsure, which explains why signposts differ between 11th and 12th centuries!
The nearby Château d'Épanvilliers dates back to the 16th-18th centuries, and hosts a museum of games.
During the Second World War, the area was the centre of intense Resistance activity and action by the SAS.
What trip to France would be complete without partaking of great food and drink?
Great wines are available at low prices throughout France, and this area is no exception.
You can also enjoy locally-made cheese to go with artisan-made breads, and we could help you book a tour around one of the top cognac houses - an unforgettable experience
