About the Owner
We are originally from Colchester but live here at La Tannerie all year round. We took the decision to 'give it a go' and gave up our jobs as a languages teacher and in the NHS in 2004. More than ten years later we are still enjoying the combination of the French lifestyle and a job that brings us into contact with a huge variety of clients. We still derive a great deal of pleasure out of seeing people enjoying their time at La Tannerie and take it as a huge compliment that many return year after year.
From the Owner
“Having watched every episode of 'A Place in the Sun' we knew that we wanted to run a gite complex in the south west of France. We were familiar with parts of the Dordogne having spent many holidays there, but knew nothing of its neighbour, the Charente. But a long weekend was all it took for us to discover La Tannerie and put in an offer! The peaceful rolling countryside, reliable climate and easy connections with the UK made it a simple decision! Within an hour or so are the major cities of Bordeaux and Perigueux, the vineyards of Cognac, Bergerac and St Emilion, and the Atlantic coast with its resorts and fishing villages. The area is served by major airports at Bordeaux and Bergerac. Chalais is minutes from the main A10 and the TGV stops at Angouleme.”
Activity and Interests
The nearest seaside resort is approximately 1 hour by car at Royan. However, there is a very popular riverside beach at Aubeterre less than 10 minutes away.
Calais - Chalais by road is a distance of 500 miles and takes about 8 hours driving time.
There are airports at Bergerac and Bordeaux (75 minutes by car) as well as Limoges, Poitiers and La Rochelle (2 hours)
The nearest town is 100 metres away!
For larger cities Angouleme (30 miles) and Bordeaux (1 hour) are both well worth a visit.
Being situated right in the heart of the town means that all the facilities are within a minute or two's stroll.

“It is La Tannerie's unique position in the centre of the market town of Chalais that is appreciated by all of our visitors.

Yet within the tree-lined grounds of La Tannerie you would never know you were in a town.”
