Things to do and see in the area

Restaurants
Food lovers are well catered for in the area. We are very fortunate to have an excellent restaurant in the local village called Les Bistrot des Halles which serves food of the highest quality and extremely reasonable prices. There is also a very good restaurant in the neighbouring town of Montmoreau called, Le Bistroquet. For finer dining there is the Chateau in Chalais (which after a numer of years in the doldrums appears to have found its way one more) and in Aubeterre, one of our favourites, Le Hostellerie de Perigord. La Taverne and Le Cochon Prieur, also in Aubeterre are also worth a visit. Finally, Le Poirier, in Bardenac,an old fashioned French country restaurant, offering fantastic homely fare (lunch only) is a must do.

Wine Lovers
Wines lovers will not be disappointed in the area as we are located only a 45 minute drive from the heart of some of France's best known wine regions such as St Emilion and Pomerol, and Fronsac. An hour's drive will bring to the heart of the Bordelais region.

For the kids, kayaking on the river Dronne at Aubeterre has proved very popular with many of our clients as has tree climbing at Accrobranche at St. Aulaye and the adventure park Poltrot in Nabinaud. There are also man made beaches at Aubeterre and Etaing Valier in Brossac.

Other interesting things to see and visit in the area include the Chateau in Chalais, the ancient seat of the Prince of Tallyrand, the fortified chateu in Villebois Lavalette and last but not least, Chateau de la Mercerie, known as the Versailles of Charente which is perhaps one of the most unusual follies one could ever see - the most impressive 220m long facade of a chateau with effectively noting behind the facade!
A must see when in the area is the monlithic church in Aubeterrre. The church dates to the 12th century and is largest such church by volume in Europe.
