About the neighborhood
On a single track road by the river, your holiday cottage is just a few kilometers from the town of Châteauneuf-sur-Charente, which has superb restaurants, family run bakeries and cake shops, markets, supermarkets and a train station. It also has a river beach, popular for swimming and sunbathing, 'Le Bain des Dames'. From the house, relax and watch occasional boats pass through the lock. A popular and welcoming riverside family pub/restaurant serving lunch and dinner with occasional live music is within walking distance. The picturesque village of Saint Simeux with historic sites is just a pleasant stroll away. Popular with cyclists, the local countryside is mostly cognac vineyards and rolling fields of sunflowers and corn.
Getting around
For those keen to explore, your base will be 30km from Cognac and 20km from Angoulême. While a car is recommended, there's a bus stop in Saint Simeux and a train station in Châteauneuf. If you want a day trip further afield, you can catch the fast train to Paris from Angoulême in just 2 hours.
