Barbezieux is a typically attractive Charentaise and attractive market town, with peaceful old streets and ancient houses. It offers such a good range of shops and facilities such as bars and restaurants. The 3 weekly markets are a delight for everyone with the very best of local produce, they are an essential of the French way of life.


The countryside around Barbezieux is an absolute paradise for walkers, with its rolling fields and hills and pretty little villages. Life here is gentle and sweet, and this is reflected in the countryside itself. Most leisure activities are available within a small radius of the town, with horse-riding, swimming and cycling being especially popular. The town is inland, but it is within easy enough reach of the seaside in the Charente Maritime (1 hour drive from the cost).
