About the neighborhood
The village of Chambon Bourg has an historic church and cemetery. The separate village of Chambon-Gare, 2 miles to the south has a post office. Flat country lanes fan out from Chambon, providing quiet and safe walking and cycling routes. The tall hedgerows lining the lanes harbour many species of songbirds. Buzzards, harriers, kites and owls are frequent visitors. Deer and hares are also to be seen. During June and July many of the fields surrounding Chambon are full of sunflowers. A 25 minute drive west will take you to La Rochelle with its historic medieval towers guarding the entrance to the beautiful Old Port. The choice of excellent places to eat and drink is endless. Street entertainments around the harbour every night during the summer make for a pleasant after dinner stroll. At the... more
