Pressignac - rural peace

If you are looking to find peace and tranquillity in a lovely setting, take a look at the pretty little village of Pressignac, in the Charente department of Poitou-Charentes. With less than 500 inhabitants, the village retains a peaceful and genuinely rural air, yet is located within easy reach of many of the best attractions of the region.

Shops and amenities available in the village

It's a small, but dedicated community, and has a few shops and a bar within the village itself, which is more than you will find in many similar sized rural communes. There's a boulangerie, boucherie, a post office and a friendly bar/tabac, thus catering for some of life's little necessities and pleasures. Much greater shopping options and service industries can be found nearby in the market towns of Rochechouart and Chabanais. There are schools in neighbouring towns and a rural bus service operates to collect students and to bring them back to the village after school. The village doesn't have many historical monuments as such, but the Church of Saint Martin is worth seeing.

Out and about

It is its location on the edge of a fantastic leisure lake that is probably Pressignac's greatest attraction for visitors, and possibly also for residents. The lake is an established centre for sports, offering opportunities for sailing, swimming and canoeing, but even if you are feeling lazy it's a wonderfully scenic spot for a picnic or a little sunbathing on the beaches.

Why not try your hand at horse-riding?

Aside from water sports, the lakeside is also home to a very good equestrian centre, and there could hardly be a better place to enjoy this sport in safe, unspoilt surroundings. Once you have spent your day swimming, sailing and riding, if you find you have worked up something of an appetite then take a table at the excellent lakeside restaurant, Le Cote de Boeuf.

Explore Rochechouart's museum and chateau

Exploring further afield, you may wish to visit the lovely market town of Rochechouart with its meteorite museum and chateau, or take a poignant trip back in time and see the tragic village of Oradour sur Glane, scene of a terrible Nazi massacre during the war.

How to get there

There are a good number of airports which offer direct flights to and from the UK and which are easily accessible from the village. Limoges, Poitiers and Bergerac are all viable possibilities. All are served by Ryanair, with Limoges and Bergerac also being served by Flybe. The nearest ferry ports are those of St Malo and Caen, although all northern ferry ports are within reach. If driving, you will find the village not far from the N141. It can be accessed from the D29 or D10.
