Nanteuil-en-Vallee is situated east of Ruffec in the north-west of the Charente department (Poitou-Charentes region) of France. It is listed as one of France’s “petite cité de caractère’ or ‘small town of character’.
Nanteuil is an attractive village to explore, with a mix of traditional houses – mostly in stone and some half-timbered – dating back at least to the 12th century. Many of these have been renovated though there are enough that have not been touched to give the village an attractive authenticity.
The church dates from the 16th century (although with substantial 19th century modifications) while the traditional village washhouse and bread oven and a small stone fountain can also be seen in Nanteuil-en-Vallée. The fountain is dedicated to Saint Jean and was built for visitors and pilgrims alike. It was the main water source for the village until the 1960s.
There are 2 Auberges and a Charcuterie/Depot du Pain in the village and a LeClerc and an Intermarche 10 minutes drive away.
We also leave a ‘welcome pack’ so you don’t have to panic if you arrive late. We can promise wine and food to meet your needs.
