As soon as we walked through the gates we new this was the property for us we had been looking for a good few years but when we saw Les Arbres Du Noix we new that this little piece of France was for us !. Mike loves the potiou charente having holidayed and spent alot of time here i however was not as familiar with the region but when i visited i fell in love ! Whats not to like it's the second sunniest region in France the fields upon fields of sunflowers the great shopping at markets and nearby cities the road links are great and life is at a much steadier pac theres no need to rush for anything . And wait until you experience the sunsets and night skies they are fantastic !!!
Here at Les Arbres Du Noix theres lots to keep you entertained just sitting in one of the grassed areas wether its under the pagoda watching dragon flies skimming the pool or sitting under the shade of the walnut tree reading a book maybe playing games in the games room or taking advantage of the countryside - its great cycling country (very flat ) or sitting enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles at the picnic table im sure you will understand why we chose to move !!!
