Gendaine is our home in France. It is situated in the border country between the Charente and the Dordogne near the medieval town of Aubeterre sur Dronne.

It is a rural area that combines the tranquility of the unspoiled Charente countryside with the availability of many activities. It has has easy access to many larger towns and has 3 airports within an hours drive and another 2 within two hours. It is only 40 minutes from Angouleme and the TGV station which can take you to Paris in under 3 hours. It also has relatively easy access from the Western channel ports enabling you to avoid Paris and the dreaded Perpherique!
