Les Gîtes Chassors  

nearby

Les GĂ®tes Chassors is ideally placed to experience a host of festivals, events and attractions in and around the Charente region. These range from a 'must do' tour of one of the many Cognac distilleries in the area, all the way through to the fabulous Race Around the Ramparts in Angoulême, held every year in September.

The whole town reverberates to the sound of classic/vintage road and race cars, such as Bugatti, MG, Jaguar and Aston Martins to name but a few, as they race around one of the few remaining street circuits.

As a spectator you can almost reach out and touch the cars as they speed past. The 2017 event is held on 15-16-17 September 2017 - for more information click here

 

Nearby Cognac is the home of the French brandy and tours of the famous Cognac houses such as Martell, Hennessy and Remy Martin are available.

 

In Summer Les Bains des Dames in Chateaneuf has lots of activities on the river including a beach, canoes, picnic area, bar and restaurant.

For a more sedate and typically French experience, the surrounding area is perfect for exploring and discovering sleepy villages with quaint markets selling local produce or historic towns with imposing medieval architecture.
