The Charente-Maritime is apparently the second sunniest place in France which was a big lure.With rolling hills, vineyards and sunflower fields it’s very beautiful.
Fields of poppies in spring and sunflowers in summer.
The air is clean and the weather is sunny and bright most of the year round.
September is a special time when the Circuits des Remparts takes place in Angoulême.
Vintage cars from all over Europe take part, it’s a wonderful weekend.
There are numerous hiking tracks and the Charente River is great for days out.
