River and canal map for the River Charente in France

Click map to zoom

One of the most stunning regions of France, and beautifully unspoilt...

Please note that this region still has manual locks, and that the Lot requires some previous experience.

Between the Loire and Garonne, the Charente river runs slowly through Angouleme and the vineyards of Coganc to the Atlantic ocean. Enjoy the distilled brandies, Renaissance castles and Romanesque churches.
