About Aubeterre sur Dronne:
In South West Charente, on the border of the Dordogne, sits Aubeterre Sur Dronne, one of the prettiest villages in France. This popular village is built on a hillside with winding ancient streets and alleyways which lead you to a shady tree filled square in the centre with a choice of restaurants, shops and Sunday market. A popular destination is the underground monolithic church. On the outskirts a lively river beach with restaurant in the summer months.
About our area:
With its beautiful rolling countryside the south Charente has become a popular and sought after destination. The climate in summer is warm and pleasant. The riverside beaches at Aubeterre sur Dronne, Saint Aulaye and Brossac (lake) become havens for those looking to cool off and enjoy the sunshine beside the water.
Predominately an agricultural area, the countryside changes colour with the seasons showcasing the greens and golds of winter wheat and of the course the bright yellow of the famous sunflowers.
Access to the Charente is very easy from the Uk with low cost flights being available from various airports to Bordeaux, Bergerac, Limoges, La Rochelle and Poitiers. Driving from the Channel Ports is between 5-9 hours.
The capital of the Charente, Angouleme, is about 40minutes drive from Chalais and the beautiful Unesco World Heritage city of Bordeaux, with more protected buildings than any other French city except Paris, is only 1.5 hours away. Cognac, Saint Emilion and the Atlantic coast also make good day trips. For those who wish to ski, the Pyrenees are 4 hours away and the Alps are about 6 hours drive.
