Chives - Charente Maritime
Spring comes early to the Charente-Maritime. In the first week of March the temperature sometimes nudges the 70s. Children run about in T-shirts and shorts under a sky flecked with white clouds. If ever there was a landscape made to the measure of man, it is surely this. Rolling hills and vineyards stretch away in every direction with peace and quiet dished out in abundance. There is something for everyone and a mixture of new and old will amaze and please all.
