French Property News - spotlight on Jarnac

The latest edition of French Property News is running a double page spread entitled "Spotlight on Jarnac, Charente" written by yours truly.

You can see the full online version of the article here.

If you are interested in buying a house in the Charente then I'd suggest that Jarnac should play a central role in your search.  The town itself (home to Courvoisier and birthplace of Francois Mitterand) is exceptionally pretty with a lovely market and plenty of riverside walks.

It is also at the centre of some of the prettiest towns and villages of the Charente.  Segonzac, Bassac, Bourg Charente, Chateauneuf & Cognac are all within a few minutes.  There is championship golf close by as well as theatres, cinemas, tennis clubs, swimming pools, ice rinks, cycle routes and a huge amount of terrific bars and restaurants.

Take a minute to read the article and meanwhile here's a couple of photographs I have taken locally.

Totally Agree with you Graham. Since the bypass was opened and all the lorries now do not pass through the town it has been reborn's now quite delightful. I do predict a great upsurge in enquiries for properties in Jarnac in the coming years - best we start searching for good properties eh !
