WHERE WE ARE
The house is near Mirambeau in the Charente-Maritime, less than an hour away from Bordeaux city centre. The area enjoys the long hot summers and mild winters so necessary for the production of the fine grapes, used make fine wines and cognac.
The Charente-Maritime with 200km of Atlantic coastline is a magnificent and exceptional part of France. A quiet agricultural area, mostly vineyards and sunflower fields, wheat and maize.
The population density for the Charente Maritime is on a par with Cumbria – England’s least populous county – for those used to Britain’s congested roads the comparative peace of rural French roads makes driving a pleasure again.
