Chalais is found in the Charente department of the Poitou Charentes region of South West France. When you visit Chalais you’ll discover a pretty, petite town, with its own chateau protecting it. When you stay in self catering holiday accommodation in Chalais you’ll note that the Chateau du Talleyrand is built strategically on a hill dominating the town. Originally a medieval fortress – today the draw bridge is still in working order.

Chalais really is the perfect destination if you are a lover of the finest food and wine that France can provide. La Maison de Talleyrand-Périgord is housed within the Chateau du Talleyrand and is known as one of France’s best restaurants, presided over by top chef Albert Verschoor. Albert is not only the chef but also the owner of the restaurant, don’t forget when you stay in a Chalais Holiday Gite to make your reservation in advance at this world acclaimed restaurant.

Monday is market day in Chalais - when all the roads are closed to traffic. Popular places to visit when you stay in a Chalais Holiday Cottage include: Aubeterre-sur-Dronne - a listed 'most beautiful village'. Just 10 km away, it is known primarily for its monolithic church. It is also an important stopping point on the Compostella pilgrim trail. Another place to visit when you rent a holiday home in Chalais is Riberac.  At 24 km away, Riberac is actually located in the neighbouring department of the Dordogne (found in the Aquitaine region). There are two main attractions near Riberac - the large forest (the 'Foret de la Double') and numerous Romanesque churches in the surrounding villages. Friday is a busy market day here too.
