Saint-Jean-d'Angély: adorable little town with 8300 inhabitants and its rich heritage (abbey royal towers of the abbey, the clock tower, aldermen, half-timbered houses, mansions of the eighteenth and nineteenth...), accompanied by the gentle the banks of the Boutonne (walk along the Boutonne and its gardens, walking trails and cycling, fishing, canoeing, pedal...), located in the heart of the Pays des Vals de Saintonge Charente Maritime: 40 minutes the beach, 30 minutes from Cognac and Saintes, 35 minutes from Niort, 50 minutes from La Rochelle...

The city, built on the site of a Roman villa on the shores of the Boutonne was an important step on the way to Compostela (hence the construction of a royal abbey of Aquitaine by Pepin to receive the head of St. -Jean Baptiste).
