About the neighbourhood
The estate offers lovely views, peace and tranquility yet is within striking distance of the coast and historic towns such as Cognac, Bordeaux, St. Emilion and Angoulème. Closer still is the beautiful village of Aubeterre where you can easily spend the day sampling the lovely restaurants, art galleries and shops. The nearest town is Brossac, a 5 minute drive away, and has a market and plenty of shops and other services: banking, pharmacy, post office, hairdressers, tabac, bakeries, convenience store, butcher, garage and petrol station and a very good pizza restaurant.

The village centre also has 2 tennis courts that can be rented by popping into the Pharmacy. For more shopping, the town of Chalais is only about 15 minute’s drive, and has a
