To the east are beautiful towns along the Charente river, including the historic old towns of Saintes and Cognac. A short drive to the north is the Loire Valley with many magnificent chateaux. To the south are the vineyards of Bordeaux and the River Dordogne and beautiful countryside.

And if you prefer to stay at Les Capucines and relax, there is a very large terraced swimming pool, which enjoys sunshine all day long, and mature, well laid out gardens. Each cottage has its own barbecue area as well as table and chairs for outdoor eating, and communal dining for up to 24 guests is available inside and out.
