Where we are…

Welcome to Le Jardin du Berger, our home in the rolling countryside of the South Charente, an area rich with vines and fields of sunflowers. We offer a peaceful holiday retreat which is ideally placed for discovering the pretty towns, historical sites and unspoilt beaches of this beautiful part of France. We are surrounded by colourful fields and open views; when you’re not in my studio, just relax and unwind, away from the stresses of “real” life… Bring a book… sit and doze under a tree or by the swimming pool… Find a quiet corner for writing… Take yourself into the woodland to sketch and to paint…

We are situated 1.5km outside a little village called Challignac, where there is a boulangerie and a Romanesque church. We are between Bordeaux, Cognac, and Angouleme and the Atlantic coast is just over an hour’s drive away. We have an oak woodland where you can wander, sketch and take photos for inspiration, and the countryside is peaceful and beautiful at all times of year.
