When we ask our friends where they think The Charente actually is on the map, they often have trouble describing it exactly. You usually have to go through The Charente, rather than stopping there. You tend to be passing it on your way to the major beaches of the South-West, or to the Pyrenees, or even on to Spain. And yet there are many such beautiful landscapes to see right here. Hidden treasures, waiting to be found and enjoyed.
This is the Department with the most old Roman constructions in all of France. We have an amazing variety of landscapes: the valleys of the River Charente and all its tributaries, the wonderful vineyards around Cognac, the big hills and valleys of our Swiss Charente around Montbron, the plains and farmlands in the North Charente, the scenic lakes of the East and the forests of the Horte-Tardoire area. History is ever-present here, with many prehistoric caves, chateau, castles and roman baths. All those long walks and visits are a wonderful prospect!
