La Tannerie brings together the joy of country living with the convenience of town dwelling. Imagine not having to get into your car each morning to fetch your fresh croissants from the boulangerie! Instead, a short stroll brings you to all the facilities that this town has to offer, including supermarkets, bakers, bars and restaurants, as well as one of the best local markets in the region. Our tree-lined garden is child-friendly and has a fenced and heated swimming pool.
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.

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.
It is La Tannerie's unique position in the centre of the market town of Chalais that is appreciated by all of our visitors. Within a few minutes stroll are supermarkets, boulangeries, cafés, restaurants, banks, pharmacies, doctors and dentists. Yet within the tree-lined grounds of La Tannerie you would never know you were in a town.
