Crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming and fishing

The Charente

The Charente region is situated in the south-west. It is famous for its clear water and Cognac. Renaissance castles and Romanesque churches await your visit.

Cruising in the Charente is calming and as relaxed as the countryside around you.  Enjoy the breeze, marvel at the clear waters and the abundant wildlife and fish.

The Charente region is very rich in fauna and flora: pine forests, vineyards and far-stretching fields provide an ideal habitat for numerous species.

The 17th-century naval town Rochefort has plenty of maritime activities to interest all the family, including rope tressing!  See how the cords that you handle each day are made.

The hilltop cathedral city of Angouleme takes you back in time and offers spectacular views from the Ramparts.
