We feel lucky to live in the Charente in France as not only is it beautiful in itself but it allows us to visit so many others regions in France too.  We recently spent our bank holiday weekend in the Auvergne in France as it is only 3 hours away, and in winter you can ski there too!

To the west is the Charente-Maritime, just two hours to the coast from Ruffec, and we have also visited the Dordogne, Vendée and Limousin too, all within 2/3 hours reach!

The Charente is the perfect base to live and to explore from too!
