Tranquille Vienne

Tranquille Vienne Gites are situated close to the Charente/Limousin border, set in rolling countryside and only 5km away from the local market town of Chabanais which is host to numerous shops, bars, fine restaurants and the weekly French market, every Thursday.  Confolens is a beautiful, historical town 15 minutes away. Limoges Bellegarde Airport is 35 minutes.  The Charente capital Angouleme is 45 minutes south-west.

There is an abundance of great activities to suit guests of all ages, whether you are into site seeing or ‘action & adventure, there is something to suit all. The nearest golf course is in St Junien 20 minutes from us. The stunning countryside attracts the walkers and cyclists. Other local attractions include the Velo Rail, Aventure Parc, Monkey World or if you’re into watersports then be sure to visit the River in Exideuil for some kayaking perhaps or the Lacs de Haute Charente (10 minutes away) where you can hire pedlos, catamarans and sailing boats or if you prefer just laze around on their sandy beaches!

The area is popular with cyclists of all ages and levels of ability due to the many planned/marked out routes that are around. There is information and maps available on site to help you make your choice! Bike & safety equipment hire is available if you prefer not to travel with your own bikes.
