Sainte-Lheurine is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in the Poitou-Charentes region in southwestern France.

The village center is situated on a small hill that overlooks the vineyards, patches of forest, and the wheat, maize and sunflower fields that characterize the local landscape. A number of scattered small hamlets and single farmsteads in the plains below belong to the commune. Sainte-Lheurine lies in the "Petite Champagne", and the cultivation of grapes for the production of Cognac and Pineau is the predominant local economic activity, with much of the production sold to the large cognac producers in nearby Cognac.
