A Charente B&B is the perfect base for an active holiday sightseeing and exploring the beautiful landscape of the region. Whether you love hiking, horse-riding or cycling you'll be spoilt for choice with routes to suit all abilities. The weather here is usually warm and dry providing the ideal conditions for days spent outdoors and picnics under the sun or stars. Go off the beaten track and just see what you find or plan your day to take in some fascinating local sites. There are plenty of chateaux, an underground church dating from the 12th century at Aubeterre-sur-dronne and the unspoilt islands of Re and Oleron. The main Charente cities of Cognac and Angouleme are also well worth a visit to enjoy the superb restaurants and historical architecture.
