As with most people in this lovely part of France, we felt that we wanted to have access to who's who, what's what and where's where in the Charente Maritime. We wanted to promote respectable companies looking for your custom. We wanted to know what there was to do in the area and we wanted information that could prove useful as opposed to mountains of information that meant we could not find what we wanted.

We looked around at websites that could give us that information. We were surprised at what we found and came up with this:

We WILL advertise companies but, as an important feature, we wanted to know what existing customers thought about these companies. That's why we have introduced the Directory of Distinction. This is where YOU have your say - whether favourable or not. We want to hear your opinion on any company or business in the Charente-Maritime whether this company is French or otherwise. We are all happy to recommend company if asked by friends. Yet, how many of us have wanted to use a company and wondered what others experienced. So here's your chance to have your say. Of course, your opinion will NOT be published but, depending on the feedback we get, our Star Rating will reflect your views.

As far as the advertisers are concerned we have selected the top 40 towns (by population) and will state how far from that town they are situated. These towns and villages are (Approx. population in brackets):

It was with great pleasure and surprise that we stayed the whole morning on your very detailed property pages with a large number of photographs that could make us visualise a "possible here" scenario.... We may actually have found our dream.

So thank you for this quality of work.

As with most people in this lovely part of France, we felt that we wanted to have access to who's who, what's what and where's where in the Charente Maritime. We wanted to promote respectable companies looking for your custom, and to give you easy access to properties for sale.

We wanted to know what there was to do in the area, and we wanted information that could prove useful as opposed to mountains of information on poor-quality websites, which means you do not end up with the information you want...just confused!

Of course, we could not have a site like this without having a great section devoted to Properties. When looking for a property we looked at what YOU wanted.  This was, firstly: Price - in £ and €uros - at the current exchange rate - We're linked in with a top Foreign Exchange company for the daily rate which changes on an hourly basis.  Then, secondly, you want its location - and, thirdly: pictures... and lots of them!  If there is interest you can go to a more detailed page just for that property.  If the property is being advertised privately you will have all the vendor's details.  If the property is through an agency, you will be able to go directly to that agency's website.  How good is that - simple and effective?

The Articles section is there for anyone to contribute.  If you have an experience or a expertise you feel you could share with our site users, then write in or e-mail us your article and we will consider it for publication.  Advertisers are invited to write articles on their business expertise also for publication.  We would like to think that an important references resource can quickly be established to help all of us.   As for the Useful Information section; once again, if you feel that there is a telephone number, a suggestion, a recipe, and event or even an interesting fact then do let us know.

If you don't tell us we won't know.
