About the neighbourhood
Ancient Oaks is just 14 km from the Chateau town of Culan which claims to be the Heart of France its geographical centre. The area is traditional, unspoilt, French countryside with rolling hills, green valleys and the top quality AOC vineyard.The vineyards are famous for their Chateaumeillant gris (Rose) and rich reds. For further wine exploration, we recommend taking the Route des Vignobles which is a local tour of the vineyards that make up the Chateaumeillant wines.Meander from vineyard to vineyard and visit the many farms en route producing their own goats cheese as a perfect accompaniment to the famous gris wine.The countryside is a birdwatchers paradise with a stunning variety of birds of prey including hen harrier, montegus harrier, black and red kites and dozens more.There is als... more
