We are situated in a rural location just outside the quiet little hamlet of Le Lindois, close to the border where the regions of the Charente, the Dordogne and Limousin meet, and close to the quaint market town of La Rochefoucauld with its own magnificent Chateau, restaurants and shops and just half an hour from the historic city of Angoulême, the capital of the Charente.
Surrounded by farmland which changes each year from wheat fields to maize and sunflowers (once every 3 years), with lovely views across the Charente countryside, Le Tilleul is the perfect location to just get away from it all and relax or to use as a base to explore the region with its culture, history and sightseeing opportunities.
