Tourism, holidays & travel in the Charente

Crossed by the Charente river and its numerous affluents, the Charente département offers a wide range of attractions and activities with its landscapes of hills, vineyards, lakes, prairies and woods. With towns such as Angoulême, the French capital of the comic strip, and Cognac, famous for its brandy and its Detective film festival, as well as charming villages, castles and Romanesque churches, the Gallo-Roman site of Chassenon, and rivers and lakes for water sports, there is plenty on offer for visitors.
