Saint-Jean-d'Angély is a small town of about 8000 inhabitants with a rich heritage (royal abbey, towers of the abbey, clock tower, alderman, half-timbered houses, mansions of the eighteenth and nineteenth...), accompanied by the gentle banks of the Boutonne (hiking and biking trails, fishing, canoeing, pedalo...), located in the heart of the Golden Saintonge in Charente-Maritime and 40 minutes from the beaches of the Atlantic, 30 minutes from Cognac, 35 minutes from Niort, 50 minutes from La Rochelle...

The city, built on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa (Angeriacum) on the banks of the Boutonne, was an important step on the road to Compostela: the foundation of a royal abbey from the ninth century, by Pépin d Aquitaine, grandson of Charlemagne, destined to welcome the Chief of Saint-Jean Baptiste, is at the origin of the development of the medieval city.
