Chateaux in Charente

There are over 60 chateaux in Charente ranging from privately owned homes to tourist destinations and ruins. The region has a wealthy history reflected in the architecture of these impressive buildings and a taste for the finer things is evident in the rich Cognac and decadent truffles the region is famed for. Chateau de la Rochefoucauld is a great day out with period dressing up clothes you are welcome to wear as you take a tour of the elegant rooms. Chateau de la Roche-Courbon is also a popular destination, perhaps more for the chance to explore its extensive formal gardens that include Neolithic caves, than the chateau itself which is very beautiful but still home to the owner meaning only a few of the rooms are open to the public.
