Fun trips

Fun Trips

In the Charente it is mainly enjoyable the many different landscapes and the often unspoilt nature that is characterized by many lakes and rivers with natural clear water. With 2300 hours of sunshine per year, it is also a wonderful place to stay in the early and late season. Every season here has its charm.

In the immediate vicinity there are swimming lakes with water activities.

La Péruse is surrounded by small, picturesque villages with beautiful old churches and chateaux.

Every day there is a market or flea market to visit.

The cities of Angoulême (famous for Cartoons) and Limoges (porcelain) are a good half hour drive away.

In addition, there are activities such as hiking, golfing, canoeing, fishing and cycling.

La Péruse is located between fields of maize and sunflowers, about 10 minutes from the beautiful lakes of the Haute Charente, Lac de Lavaud and Lac de Mas Chaban. These lakes, along with the many other lakes in the region, offer a range of activities such as swimming, sailing, diving, windsurfing, canoeing, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, hiking, cycling, or blissful inaction and enjoying the sun on one of the two sandy beaches of Le Lac de Lavaud. 

Cycling and walking

For lovers of cycling and walking, there are a lot of different tracks in the area.
