Château de Praisnaud, where beauty and calm reign, is a haven of peace at the heart of a triangle formed by the cities of Angoulême, Poitiers and Limoges. It was built in the 16th century and includes a corps de logis and two conical-roofed towers on an estate of around 100 hectares of woodland and meadows. This unspoilt site is situated in Charente Limousine, between the Atlantic coast and the Limousin, with its green valleys, woodlands and rivers.
