Area description

La Courbee is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Salles de Villefagnan, Which in turn is about 10 minutes by car to Ruffec,a lovely old French market town. There are all the shops you are likely to need including supermarkets and a twice weekly street market on wednesdays and saturdays.

In our opinion the Charente is the ideal location to explore rural France, the locals here are the most friendly and welcoming we have encounted on our many years of traveling in and around France. We are just a few minuites fron the RN10 which gives quick access to the autoroutes and it is possible to explore a very wide area of France from this location here at La Courbee.

It is about an hour and a half west of here to the coast. There are lovely beaches ancient Castles and fortifications at fouras and Brouage. There are islands to explore dunes, pine forrest and not least the jewel in the west coast crown the city of La Rochelle. This coast realy has something for everyone!

Any visit to this region of France would not be complete without a visit to a cognac distillery, Cognac is less than an hour drive south west from here and the roads are deserted. There are loads of famous distillery's to visit both in and around Cognac and they all offer something different a mixture of history chemistry and intoxication.

Whether or not you are traveling with children Futuroscope just over an hour away is a great day or evening out. The night time light shows are fantastic our most recent guests from Ireland went twice in one week!

A great day out with a twist of history is a visit to the Chateau at La Rochfaucauld. Visitors are allowed to wander this furnished chateau.

A lovely day for all the family, wander through large open-air enclosures, where monkeys are free to roam and swing through the tree's in a very natural environment.

A nice way to spend a few hours pedaling your own rail bicycle along the old railway tracks, There are various starting stations along the track, on reaching your destination the staff turn your bicycle round for your return to your starting point while they do this there is usualy time for a picnic and refreshment.

The Charente river is a lovely very clean lazy River, it is possible during high season to hire canoes both at Ruffec or Mansle. It is especialy great fun to do a decent of the river from Ruffec say to Vertueil a couple of hours or a bit longer if you take a picnic, they will then come in a mini bus and pick you and the canoes up and return to your start point.

Just a few minutes by car is the Rejaliant on The Charente river at Ruffec, this is a leisure area with a small beach, picnic area, swimming, fishing, canoeing, cafe-restaurant and generally a fun place complete with it's own working water mill.

We are very lucky here in this part of the Charente,to have many very good and reasonable restaurants within a few mins drive.
