Puyréaux - a tranquil, charming village

The tranquil old village of Puyréaux is surrounded by a countryside that variously includes golden sunflowers, wheat, corn, forests, rivers and lakes. Puyréaux is also close to many of the well known holiday attractions of this area. Puyréaux's charm lies not just in its pretty setting, but in the higgledy piggledy arrangement of its old stone houses and streets. It seems like a secret, lost world, untouched by the ugly modernities of many towns in the UK. It is a perfect spot to retire to and escape from the stresses of life, if only for a while.

Limited facilities but many more within easy reach

The village has a couple of amenities such as a beautician's business and a renovation service (handy if you are trying to improve your property) and also a good little restaurant, but for most shops and services you will need to pop into next door Mansle (no hardship, it's a lovely village right on the doorstep!) where you can find most things you will need. Ruffec is not far away either, with a larger range of shops and services. The countryside meanwhile offers many sports and activities with walking, cycling, swimming, fishing and horse-riding being among the most popular.

Visit Poitiers or the theme park Futuroscope

If the peace of the village becomes too much for you, you have no end of options for getting out and about to explore this wonderful part of France. Poitiers is a great city with something for everyone to enjoy, from shopping to dining to heritage tours and the acclaimed theme park of Futuroscope. Nearby too is the delightful Monkey Park, La Vallée des Singes. A little further away lies the stunning Dordogne department, easily accessed from the Charente department which borders it, while to the east is the green lung of France, the beautiful Lakeland of the Limousin.

How to get there

You can travel by air or train using Poitiers or Limoges airports and railway stations, and take local train services to Ruffec or hire a car for the rest of the journey to Puyréaux. (Poitiers airport is served by Ryanair and Limoges airport by Ryanair and Flybe.) The N10 is very close to the village, and the D6 and D116 roads are the roads to use to access the village from the N10.
