Saint Aigulin - thriving and elegant

St Aigulin, which lies in the south of the Charente-Maritime department, close to the Dordogne border, is a thriving and elegant town despite its relatively small size. Set on the beautiful River Dronne, which has successfully formed a strong defensive barrier around the town for centuries, St Aigulin also enjoys the glorious backdrop of the Forêt de Double, the Double Forest, where legend has it that many who fled from the wars that ravaged the country in the Middle Ages later took refuge here.

Excellent amenities

Small it may be, but St Aigulin is perfectly formed! This little town has a great community life, a strong sense of its own identity, and a determination to thrive and give the very best to its residents and visitors. Here you can find all the essentials, with a pharmacy, banks, local shops, a post office, bars and even restaurants. All the usual services are available too, including health care and education.

Anyone for tennis?

Whether you fancy a game of tennis or a different sporting activity, the beautiful countryside that surrounds the town will entice you off that sofa and into some sporting gear! You can swim in the deliciously cool waters of the rivers and sunbathe on the river beaches that are found locally. You can walk, cycle or ride a horse to discover the fabulous off road trails through the forests and vineyards, play that game of tennis or even golf, if that's your bag. The Atlantic is within reach, and as the town of St Aigulin sits in the Charente-Maritime, close to the departments of the Charente, the Dordogne and the Gironde, all the events and activities of these areas are easily accessed.
