Accommodation in the Charente

If you're looking for a holiday home or a permanent lifestyle change, the first step is to find accommodation in the Charente.

Especially if you have only visited the Charente in the holidays. (Or as in our case - never visited it before!)

There are many gîte owners who are happy to offer accommodation for a few weeks or up to six months outside the normal holiday seasons. At much reduced rates.

For example, our monthly rent was less than a normal week's rent in high season...
