About my area

OK, so with the whole of France to choose from, why would you want to come & live in the Charente?

Well, the region is reputed to be one of the sunniest areas of France with a mild & temperate climate - warm in the summer without being uncomfortably so, dry in the winter (imagine crisp winter mornings under a blue sky). The region is largely rural, agriculture being the main “industry” with a countryside that encompasses vineyards & fields, to rolling hills & forests, together with rivers & lakes. In the summer the beaches of Royan & La Rochelle are little more than an hour away.

The Charentaise are traditionally considered as “laid back” by the rest of France. Maybe the fact that the departments’ symbol is the snail says a lot about the area!

Angouleme, with a population of less than 50,000 is our main city in the Charente, with its historic ramparts (which once a year hosts a vintage car rally). The old quarter is a warren of small pedestrianised streets with pavement restaurants & let’s not forget the balloon festival or the comic strip (bd) festival. Nearby Confolens, sitting on the River Vienne, is host to an annual music festival with groups & dance troupes from all over the world. Being an agricultural region means lots of colourful markets full of local meat, fruit & veg, not forgetting our regional specialities of Pineau de Charente, cognac & grillon (a local speciality charcuterie). We can even buy goats cheese from our local chateau.

The area is well served by various budget airlines flying into Angouleme, Limoges & Poitiers. The western ports are a 5 – 6 hour drive, whilst Paris is 2 hours away by train.

About me

I spent most of my working life in the UK in sales & marketing. Oh, how the thought of commuting into London now fills me with dread ! So you will understand that my resistance was low when, one evening, after a sumptuous meal with fine wine, it was suggested we “pack it all in & move to France”. Best thing I ever did! I was open to suggestions as to where to settle & visited several regions, but when we saw our house, we just knew “this was it”. I always say, we didn’t pick the Charente, it picked us. Life is so different here to the hustle & bustle of the UK – not for nothing is the snail the emblem of Charente. I love the relaxed pace of life, the daily amble to the village shop for a baguette, & feel that we have been welcomed into our local community, making new friends, although I must admit there is an element of jocular rivalry when there are international football or rugby matches being played. And you have to be around when we have a UK vs France petanque (boules) match on the local village terrain. So whether you are looking for a permanent home, or perhaps a holiday home as that first stepping stone, let me help you. Hope to see you soon. Oh, & as you can see, we grow sunflowers in the Charente.
