Néré - the land of brandy, sunflowers and seafood

If that sounds like the ideal location for your French home, the little town of Néré in the Charente-Maritime could be perfect for you. Set in picturesque surroundings, with fields of sunflowers, neat vineyards and close to the Atlantic Ocean, Néré is peaceful and pretty. Yet it's also self sufficient, with excellent amenities.

Amenities available in Néré

The town is, in truth, somewhere between a small town and a village, with just under 750 inhabitants. But it has local shops, a supermarket and even a friendly bar and bistro to tempt you. If you need greater facilities, Aulnay is nearby with lots of shops and restaurants, street markets and an historic church. In fact, if historic churches interest you, little Néré has its own listed church, the Eglise Saint Pierre.

Perfect for cycling, walking, swimming and riding

The Charente-Maritime has stunning, unspoilt countryside, and plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy it. The quiet lanes and vineyards are perfect for riding or walking, and as much of the landscape is quite flat, it's good for cyclists too. The woods near Néré are lovely for walkers, with chances to spot wildlife as you go. Then there are rivers and lakes for swimming and boating, the seaside within an easy drive, and a great choice of golf courses in the region.

Of course, there's lots of history and heritage to discover too, with Poitiers, the principal town of the region, being packed with interest. Cognac, famous for its superb brandy, is also well worth a visit.
