is full of french charm and the honored owner of the largest monolithic church in Europe.

The village also prides itself with a ranking on the list of most beautiful villages in France.  Located in the Southern Charente it borders on the Dordogne region famous for historic villages, Châteaux,

pre-historic caves and incredible landscapes.

 

There is a lovely square with terraces and quaint restaurants in the centre. What a delight to wander around the narrow romantic medieval streets with it's typical stone houses that give the village that special, picturesque character.

 

The Dronne river that flows past the village at the bottom of the hill, also adds to the magic. The river beach is enjoyed for swimming and playing,  picnicking on the banks and evening sundowners, during the summer months it becomes a hive of activity.

Every Sunday morning the square comes alive with stall holders displaying their fresh produce, musicians join in and a convivial local market takes place. Proud shop owners attend to his or her wares on this day with their antique finds and artisan products.

 

The monolithic church is a must for everyone who visits the area. So steeped in history and interesting stories that really grab one's imagination. Music concerts are hosted inside the church from time to time.

 

Yes, Aubeterre has so much on offer and we welcome visitors to come and share in the experience!
