The region

pictures of the region

La Prèze is situated in the department of the Charente, close to the Dordogne and the Haute-Vienne (Limousin).

In this region you will find a lovely hilly scenery, speckled with small farms, lakes and woodland. Many small streams run through the region, as well as foothpaths and trails used by walkers and cyclists.

The climate is very pleasant: long and warm summers (but not excessively hot) and winters that normally are rather mild.

Here, you will find beautiful castles and other remains of passed centuries. Charming little towns like La Rochefoucauld, Piégut and Montbron have weekly markets.

You will need about an hour by car to get to the bigger cities like Angoulême, Limoges or Périgueux.
