Offering a wealth of places of interest to discover, the Charente valley is endowed with remarkable sites, such as Angoulême, Cognac, Jarnac, Bassac and its abbey, and Verteuil-sur-Charente.

Other places not to be missed: Saint-Simon, a village located on the river where barges used to be manufactured, these traditional boats used for goods transportation. A signposted circuit shows visitors the evidence of its rich past. To find out more about it, you can visit the Maison des Gabarriers which recounts the river's history and explains how the barges were manufactured.

To discover the wonderful natural and built heritage of the Charente valley, you only need to walk or cycle along the towpaths, take a boat cruise or go canoeing or kayaking on the river.
