Salles Lavalette, Pretty village of Charente

10 km away from my village, Saint Martial Viveyrols, you can visit a wonderful place : Salles-Lavalette. Village of South Charente, it is about 30 km from Angoulême on the Lizonne river.

Saint Martin Church is a real jewel full of surprises... Here are a few photos to show you up this amazing place..

Do not hesitate to have lunch at "La Cigale Charentaise" ... A very large and tasty restaurant... where
you can eat typical Charentais meals... and drink of glass of Pineau des Charentes (Please, go to Maine Giraud, close to Blanzac, a few km away, former proprety of French author Alfred de Vigny... They produce the best Cognac and Pineau of the area !!)
