Description of Les Deux Sabots Bed & Breakfast:Our traditional stone cottage, dating from the 19th Century, has been tastefully renovated to give you comfortable accommodation full of charm and character. It's set in a little hamlet, close to the river Vienne, in the heart of the beautiful, serene Charente countryside. The area, famous for rolling landscapes, charming villages and medieval chateaux, is an idyllic part of France. In our local village of Exideuil, a short 10 minutes stroll crossing the river Vienne, there are amenities including a baker ( essential for your morning croissant) a chemist, a grocery store and bars.
The Charente is the place to be if you are looking for a slice of traditional French life. The pace of life is slow so why not join the locals for a leisurely glass of pineau (a delicious blend of local wine fortified by the addition of cognac) while you watch the world go by?
For those looking for a slightly more energetic holiday, there are plenty of options for days out to suit all ages and interests. Visit beautiful old towns like Confolens, Angouleme and Cognac with its famous cognac houses. Enjoy rolling countryside, beautiful rivers (with the option to kayak), and darkly wooded forests with walking and cycling tracks for great days exploring.
Go swimming in the Charente lakes, many with life guard supervision and beach side facilities. Not forgetting golf courses, chateaux, zoos and Roman villas to explore - two weeks will just not be long enough!
We are only 30 minutes from Limoges Airport. For those preferring to use their own car its about a 5 hour drive from the ferry port of Caen or St Malo (If using Brittany Ferries we can give you a code to get a discount.)
