The south Charente is known as the ‘Tuscany of France’. You can see why, as you discover this beautiful area.

This home is in the middle of a small town surrounded by vines within walking distance of everything important to your daily living requirements. It is an old stone house in keeping with its neighbors on the outside, yet comfy and with all modern conveniences on the inside. Mere steps away is a beautiful Chateau with a neighboring Distillery, opposite rows of vines, on the edge of town.You can hear the church bell chiming on the ¼ and the hour (during daylight hours), which is one of the special things about being in the middle of a French and indeed European village. Merignac is a rural ‘working town’. As such there are many noises associated with daily life here. Enjoy being a part of it.

The Vines is located at 1 Rue des Trois Cornieres, Merignac, Charente, 16200, France. La Maison du Bonheur, 4 Place de Port, Bourg-Charente 16200, France. La Maison de Riviere, 2 bis Place de Port, Bourg-Charente 16200, France.
