The Charente & Local Information

 

The Charente

The Charente is located in the western area of France, in what is now known as the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

It is a peaceful area, ideal for relaxing holidays, being mainly agricultural. Indeed, in summer it has long been associated with fields of Sunflowers! It is also Cognac country, with over 75,000 hectares of vineyards that go to produce cognac!
