Well placed, however you arrive
Les Tilleuls is situated in Echebrune, among the rolling hills of the Charente Maritime region in south west France.
We’re a five-minute drive away from Pons with its medieval keep and hospice where the pilgrims on their way to Santiago del Compostela found sanctuary. Find time to stroll the ramparts and alleyways of this hilltop town. Pons also provides bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks and twice-weekly local produce markets.
Les Tilleuls is surrounded by vineyards producing the eau de vie from which Cognac is made, local wines and the local aperitif, Pineau des Charentes. You will always be welcome and visits to a local producer can be arranged.
