About the area
The Charente has become one of our most popular French regions in recent years - but why?
North of Bordeaux in southwest France, the department of Charente, named after the Charente river, is a place of forests and hills and lush vineyards where grapes produce Cognac, the department’s most famous product. Part of the Poitou-Charentes region, it is also one of the sunniest corners of France, with 25 per cent more sunshine hours than London.
Charente provides excellent value for money for property buyers, with prices remaining stable and a wide variety of houses for sale at all price levels.
As an alternative to the Dordogne, it has been growing in popularity with British buyers, because it oﬀers a great coastline, wonderful food and wine, pretty villages and aﬀordable houses.
The department is served by excellent motorways with easy access from the ports of Brittany and Normandy and is about seven hours’ drive from the port of Calais. The closest airport, La Rochelle, oﬀers ﬂights to the UK and Europe, as do Bordeaux-Merignac and Poitiers airports a little further aﬁeld. Trains stop at several towns and the fast-track LGV service connects to Angoulême, from where you can reach Paris in one and a half hours.
Vineyards are sprinkled across the region, with the most prestigious being in Grande Champagne (no relation to Champagne further north), a member of the European Cittaslow movement where the quality of life takes precedence. Though not as celebrated as Bordeaux, Charente’s vines produce ﬁne wines and the local favourite, Pineau des Charentes, a fortiﬁed wine drunk as an aperitif.
In Charente, you are never far from the countryside. British buyers tend to look for properties in the surrounding villages rather than the centre of towns, and with 404 communes in the department, there’s a lot of choice. Charentaise-style houses – traditional stone properties, often with exposed beams and an enclosed courtyard to the front – are sought after and are usually located in tranquil hamlets.
