Places to visit in Charente, France 

Angouleme  Capital of the Charente department. This beautiful medieval town is almost overflowing with art and history. The town is encircled by a number of boulevards situated above the old city walls, known as the ramparts.  A number of magnificent views can be enjoyed looking across the department from all directions. The town centre sees the traditional narrow streets with the old town having been preserved and maintained wonderfully. The old town is mainly reserved for pedestrians where you will find a number of boutiques, galleries and fine restaurants located throughout the cobbled street and appreciated by the locals and visitors each year. One of the town`s biggest attractions is the Angouleme Cathedral, a church that dates back since the 11th and 12th century in a Byzantine–Romanesque style. The cathedral was dedicated to Saint Peter and has undergone frequent restoration over the years. Animation has become the main artistic heritage of Angouleme as it entered the 20th century. Many artists have left their heroes ornamented on the walls throughout the town. 

Aubeterre-sur-Dronne.  A Beautiful village located on the borders of the Dordogne and the Charente. The village is full of wonderful white buildings and takes its name from the Latin alba terre which means white earth, the reason for this is because of the white chalk rock face that overlooks the town. During your Rent-in-France self catering holiday rental be sure to visit Eglise Saint-Jean, an underground church/monolithic church which contains a Roman reliquary and a crypt. It is believed this was discovered back in 1958, the necropolis contains more than 80 sarcophagi. 

Cognac  Located on the banks of the Charente River this beautiful medieval town is where the world famous Cognac brandy originated from. Situated between the towns of Saintes and Angouleme a large part of the town has been built on the left bank of the river. Cognac is also home to the French Air Force training base. The town contains a number of unusual buildings which were built between the 15th and 18th centuries, its narrow cobbled streets contain many sculptures of salamanders and Gargoyles and the buildings have richly decorated facades. Many of the narrow winding streets emerge into old Cognac warehouses and cork manufacturers, both of which offer tours educating you on Cognac production when taking holiday cottages in Charente. 

The Charente department is one of the sunniest parts of France and benefits from a high number of sunshine hours each year, approximately 2250 hours. The only places in France that exceed this are the departments located on the Mediterranean coastal strip. The winters are relatively mild but its inland location mean that the Charente department can see up to 40 days per year of frosty nights as the temperature drops. Snow is very rare in this area. Being close to the Atlantic Ocean means spring usually comes early in Charente with the trees and flowers coming to life as early as March, this is earlier than most other locations across France.                                                                                                                          

Your Rent-in-France self catering holiday rental in Charente will be located no more than an hour and a half of Bordeaux(BOD), Bergerac(EGC) and Poitiers airports. All of these airports are all serviced well by a number of low cost airlines from across Britain
