Chabanais is about ten minutes from Les Trois Chenes but it is over the border in the Charente.
Chabanais is a bustling, picturesque market town built on the River Vienne with lovely river walks and all usual amenities.
What to see: Regular markets, pretty river, regular horse and cattle fairs.
What to do: Make sure you don’t miss the autumn fete, Journées de la Quintinie. It really is fabulous. A combination of local foods, drinks, crafts, dance and music. It also has plant growers and one of the fabulous local dinners.
