La Charnière is in Chadalais, part of the commune of Maisonnais-sur-Tardoire in the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Limousin (PNPR) and on the eastern edge of the Périgord Vert.
Being in the Perigord Vert, we are surrounded by lush green pasture and woodland, in an area known as the ‘land of the lakes’.
Whilst situated rurally, we are on the border of the Haute Vienne (87), Charente (16) and Dordogne (24) and as such have excellent accessibility to many small villages and larger towns for their amenities and attractions. The area offers well-maintained routes with minimal traffic that pass through chestnut forests, pastureland and pretty villages.
Chadalais is a quiet hamlet offering peace and tranquility in the French Countryside, however, we are just a 10-minute drive from the village of Saint Mathieu with its supermarket, boulangerie, cafe, post office, tabac and bars. The larger towns of Rochechouart, La Rochefoucauld, Piegut-Pluviers, Nontron, Montbron, Saint Junien and Confolens- and many smaller villages- are all within a scenic 30-minute drive and the cities of Limoges and Angouleme are both around 45 minutes away.
