Google Screenshots of Charlan and Surrounding Area
Thank you to Google maps/Google earth, we now have the ability to take screenshots of where our homes and villages are located. Below are 3 screenshots of Charlan, 47190 Aiguillon, (Charlan is in the red square box). As you can see Charlan is not too far from the village of Aiguillon. Walking distance approximately 15 minutes. 1 neighbour nearby and surrounded by kiwi plantations, maize and the River Lot – a non flood zone. A quiet and peaceful setting. Ideal location for fishing, water activities, relaxing by the pool, visiting nearby villages, eating out, golfing, shopping, to name a few. Area is famous for prunes and wine and lots of delicious local produce which can be found in the local markets. Aiguillon has a market on Tuesday and Friday mornings. A62 to Bordeaux and Toulouse is a 10 minute drive and the trains from Aiguillon station go Bordeaux and to Agen, (connection for TGV). Bordeaux and Bergerac airports, 60 minute drive and Toulouse in 90 minutes. We travel back to the UK once a year by car/ferry and from our home it takes just under 8 hours to Le Havre and 8.5 hours to Dieppe, this is including stops for fuel and rest breaks.
Charlan has been a B&B in the past, many cyclists stopped over for the night on their way to Canal du Midi or cycling the Lot Valley Veloroute. Ideal as a holiday home, holiday rental or just as we have done, lived in Charlan permanently and run our property management business from here. A very versatile property.
