Take yourself back in time by following the trail of castles.
No fewer than four spectacular castles await you, promising new and unique experiences. Each has its own story, its own charm, and its own share of mystery.
On the castle trail
South Charente is brimming with Roman churches. Each one more interesting than the other, they are a source of serenity, the secret of which is theirs to keep.
Visit a museum
Take the time to observe and imagine what life was like in the past, what this or that object was used for…
You might be surprised and learn more about a past that is so far and yet so close at the same time…
View art in all its forms, be it paintings or sculptures that are dark, joyful, realistic, abstract – let yourself be guided by the artist.
Visit a craftman
Art, passion, working with their hands – this is what incarnates the craftsman. Each one, within their own speciality, continues to be amazed by their creations and strives to make their work more imaginative, more beautiful and sometimes a little more strange.
Come and visit them in their ateliers and shop. Open their doors into their world and share their passion!
Visit a cognac producer in their distillery
Perhaps the rain isn’t so bad if it means stopping by a Cognac producer.
The distiller will most likely welcome you to his distillery and share the sweet melody behind blending this famous nectar.
So, are you ready to experience it?
Take tea in a cosy place
There’s nothing like a hot drink to warm you up, curled up on a sofa or a pouffe with some music playing in the background. Afternoon tea, homemade hot chocolate, coffee… take your pick!
