The Charentes is bursting with exciting possibilities, so much so, that they are too numerous to mention .
For the more energetic there are leisure pursuits to be found in easy reach , including, fishing at Pescalis a large lake complex, go-karting, horse riding at the local
stables and also "green venice" a canal system where you can hire punts, canoes and pedloes. Further a field there is a velo-rail which combines cycling and sight seeing in a most unusual way. Dependant on season you will find fields of sunflowers in abundance and Chateaux galore, all these add to the inspiration of both painters and non-painters alike.
Above we have given just a few examples of the better known tourist spots. There are also weekly markets that provide an insight into everyday French life.
If you are able to have the access to a car then the sky is the limit, so much to do and lots to jog the creative imagination.
