What is on in the region
Our region is famous for its hiking trails through vineyards and valleys. We are very close to the famous Camino, which finally ends in Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.
The River Dronne
There are beaches, a water park, fishing and kayaking along the river. St Aulaye has a charming beach with a restaurant next to it, as well as a pretty bastide to stroll through. The pretty village of Aubeterre also offers kayaking, fishing and river swimming and a good selection of restaurants.
The adventure park in Poltrot is very popular with children (big and small!). There are also a number of theme parks in the direction of Bordeaux.
Wine lovers are spoiled for choice. We are surrounded by hundreds of vineyards where wine can be tasted and bought many can be reached by bicycle, we can provide maps and hire you suitable bicycles. We are only 40 minutes away from St. Emilion, the most famous wine town in the world. Private wine tours can be booked here. Bordeaux is just over an hour away and has many more wine tours on offer. And if you love brandy you have to visit Cognac, which is only an hour away.
There is also riding stables nearby, run by an Anglo-French family, with offers for all riding levels in both French and English. See more here.
The largest underground church in Europe is located in Aubeterre and is a must-see. Romanesque art is abundant in the region. We can provide directions to those within walking distance.
