The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sevres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.

Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.

Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).

The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.

The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.

About Cle France, The French Property Network

Clé France is a UNIQUE network of estate agency professionals in France. Local knowledge and expertise is the very foundation of our business, and who knows France better than the French? Every one of our agents has been born, bred and trained in the area in which they work, and are able to offer local insight and assistance second to none.

They operate in the French property market, their vendors are for the most part French and so are their buyers, so when they value a property they do so in a truly local context. You can therefore be assured that you are buying property priced at the correct level for the local market, rather than that aimed at an international clientele.

Buying through Clé France means that you have access to these agents, often small independent operators, who you would otherwise never come across. For the first time, you as a British buyer genuinely have the same choice as somebody French walking through the doors of their local high street agent, and AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.

Not only are you getting the best that the French market has to offer, but you have the benefit of a U.K based enquiry office, and all of our agents speak English. We work together to guide you through the process of finding and buying your dream property, and beyond. All of our agents are long established French professionals, who have strong links with their communities, often forged over generations: they are a mine of information for our clients, and prove themselves invaluable when it comes to settling into your new home.

Sharon Evans has spent 15 years living and working in France, and understands the needs of U.K buyers. This along with an in depth knowledge of the buying system in France, the language and the culture means that you are in excellent and safe hands. Along with the team in France she can offer her clients the best of both worlds: the best value property and a superb bi lingual support network.
