A stroll by the river Charente

My good friend Andy is going to be fed up with me nicking his photos soon but seeing as he hasn't sent the Gendarmes round yet I thought I'd share some more with you.

I have just taken on some new clients who want me to find them a holiday home with river access.  I met them at the show in London and was trying to describe how wonderful the valley along the river Charente is.

Shame I hadn't seen this post about the weir at Vibrac at that stage, I could have fired it up on the laptop.

I often cycle along the "ponts et bras" of the Charente along here and it always takes my breath away....fortunately these pictures do it justice and I'm sure you can see why it's one of my favourite spots.

I'm not sure I'll be able to find my clients a view quite like this one but they do know that I'm going to do my damndest to hook them something special.

J'aime la Charente - it truly is a special river.

Hi Graham,

I saw your blog in "A taste of Garlic" and wondered if you would be interested in contributing to our new online magazine TIENS ! Le Sud-Ouest de la France.

Here's the address to the home page: which will link to the magazine.

For more information, please contact me.

Kind regards,
Perry Taylor
