It would be our pleasure to welcome you to this beautiful part of France. Set on the border of Deux Sevres and Vienne, we are in the heart of the Charente the second sunniest region in the country. La Charronniere is situated close to the N10 between Poitiers and Ruffec. The terrain is excellent for walking and cycling with wonderful views as you make your way around. You will find the fields full of sunflowers, corn and wheat alongside colourful wild flower meadows and glorious wooded areas. Wild deer, hare and birds of prey are regularly spotted and even to the naked eye the sky at night here is breath taking.
Parts of the property date back to 1865 and La Charronniere was once a mule breeding farm. We are nestled in between Chaunay; which has a small supermarket, weekly market selling local produce (Monday), post office, pharmacy, bakers, hairdresser, tabac, bar and restaurant; and Brux which also has a supermarket. The nearest larger supermarkets are in Couhe which is 4 miles away or Civray a 15 minute drive or Sauze Vaissais which is similar drive time.
There are plenty of local attractions that would appeal to all ages within easy reach e.g. Vallee Des Singes (Valley of the monkeys) is only a 15 minute drive. Futuroscope is 40 minutes and there are many unusual activities to try such as the VeloRail or maybe Kayaking in one of the many rivers around. We provide information packs to help you plan your time with us be it Fairy-tale Chateaux, watching birds of prey put through their paces, visiting local markets and picturesque villages or something more energetic whichever makes you happy.
