Tourism description

  • AULN

    Just outside Aulnay

    Not far from Aulnay, in summer, you can discover the oldest breed of donkey: the Baudet du Poitou! A traditional Saintonge farm is home to she-donkeys, Poitevin carthorses and female mules. Take the guided tour to find out about their history and see them at close quarters in the meadows.

    Heart of Vals de Saintonge

    At the heart of the Saintonge Valleys stands the charming historic town of Saint Jean d'Angély. An important place of worship in its own right, Saint-Jean-d'Angély was also a major stopping place on the Santiago de Compostella pilgrim way. The town became prosperous in the 18th and 19th centuries thanks to its river traffic and brandy trade. The medieval half-timbered houses and many townhouses in the narrow, winding streets of the old town bear witness to its illustrious past. Much favoured by fishermen, the sparkling river Boutonne winds through the Saintonge Valleys. The green and gently rolling countryside around Saint-Jean-d'Angély is very pleasant, with over 40 walking/hiking trails and 3 mountain bike tracks.

    The country of Cognac

    To come to Cognac is to discover the secrets of the most famous brandy in the world - through its Great Cognac Houses or museum (the Musée des Arts du Cognac). From ancient times to the early 20th century Cognac used its excellent location on the banks of the river Charente to export its produce throughout Europe: salt, wine, brandy. All of these good were loaded onto heavy "gabarres" (traditional, flat-bottomed boats), transported to the mouth of the river and transferred to ocean-going vessels for their onward journey to far-flung destinations. Today "gabarres" no longer transport goods but are used for passenger cruises.

    Romanesque Saintonge -Saintes

    At the heart of Romanesque Saintonge, Saintes is a truly outstanding historic town on the peaceful banks of the Charente. Founded by the Romans, "Mediolanum Santonum" was capital of Aquitaine in the 1st century. Remains of its prosperous past include an arch (the Arc de Germanicus), an amphitheatre (the best preserved on the Atlantic coast), thermal baths and an aqueduct. Saintes is steeped in history with some very fine examples of Romanesque art: the Abbaye aux Dames and church of Saint Eutrope. A river cruise along the Charente is a lovely way to see this rich heritage and experience the relaxed rhythm of life in the capital of the Saintonge.
    Marennes, on the right bank of the Seudre estuary, is the cradle of French oyster-farming. Marennes-Oléron oysters have a unique colour due to the presence of microscopic algae, the Blue Navicula, in the oyster beds where they mature. Today Marennes-Oléron is the foremost oyster-farming centre in Europe, its production varying between 40 and 60,000 metric tons depending on the year. The Marennes-Oléron area also boasts a fine military heritage with Fort Chapus or Fort Louvois at Bourcefranc-le-Chapus and Vauban's citadel at Brouage. The Moulin des Loges (tidal mill) at Saint-Just-Luzac, in the middle of the marshes, is also worth a visit.

    Royan - the Côte Sauvage - La Palmyre

    Tucked between the Côte Sauvage and the Gironde estuary, Royan, capital of the Côte de Beauté, is an historic seaside resort. All along the coast at Royan there are great places to walk or cycle. For a good family day out try La Palmyre Zoo - the kids will love it! Expect to spend about 4 hours in this open air Noah's Ark, open all year and home to over 1,600 animals. Les Mathes-La Palmyre offers a range of activities, it 30 km of fine sandy beaches are perfect to start learning or to practise water sports, including sailing, kite-surfing, even jet-skiing.

    The estuary of the gironde and Talmont

    In the southern Charente Maritime, the Gironde estuary is reckoned to be the largest in Europe. It combines a unique eco-system - only continental river with wild sturgeon - with an extraordinary maritime and military heritage. Talmont-sur-Gironde is a walled medieval town, built on a peninsula, its Romanesque church standing majestically on a rocky headland. Stroll along its straight, right-angled streets as far as the Romanesque church of Saint Radegonde striking a pose above the billowing waters.V
    On the banks of the largest and wildest estuary in Europe, Vitrezay Nature Centre is the perfect place for those who love nature and the great outdoors. This reclaimed site features a web of marshes around a vast man-made lake, with a nature trail for bird watching and fishing. The harbour is the departure point for a number of water-based activities. From May to October a ferryboat, "Le Saintongeais", leaves from Vitrezay Nature Centre. Go for a cruise along the Gironde and discover the beauties of the Médoc. Daily cruises with commentary by a guide.
  • PONS

    Pons and his Dungeon

    The medieval town of Pons, on its rocky spur, is dominated by a 12th century keep, all that remains of an imposing medieval castle. Pons was a stopping place on the Santiago de Compostella pilgrim way and is home to a 12th-13th century hospice, the only one of its kind in Europe and now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The peaceful river Seugne runs through the town and surrounded area, its cool green banks the perfect place for many a relaxing rural stroll. This river is also well-stocked with fish, to the joy of keen fishermen. Local gastronomy is renowned and includes many regional products.

    Country of Jonzac

    Fiefdom of Upper Saintonge in the southern Charente Maritime, Jonzac is a lovely town, steeped in history and offering excellent facilities for tourists. The old Huguenot town was built around its imposing 11th century castle, extensively rebuilt in the 15th century. The old town centre, scene of an eventful past, is spread over the Mont Balaguier. Jonzac is home to the largest spa on France's southern Atlantic coast. The thermal baths enjoy an extraordinary setting, being the only modern spa in Europe to occupy cave-dwellings. Les Antilles de Jonzac is a water sports centre, open all year round, with tropical lagoon (swimming pool with waves, water chute, Jacuzzi, geysers, etc.), fitness and beauty centres.
  • ARTR3

    Romanesque art

    Romanesque art, most prominent in religious architecture, began in the kingdom of France around the year 1000, at the end of the Carolingian era. Omni-present in the Charente Maritime, it then spread throughout Europe, picking up oriental and barbarian features on the way. Here are some of the gems of Romanesque art which everyone should try to see: church of Saint-Pierre-de-la-Tour (11th century), at Aulnay-de-Saintonge, UNESCO World Heritage site, as part of the Santiago de Compostella pilgrim way; the Royal Abbey of Saint-Jean-d'Angély and the Abbaye aux Dames in Saintes, also built in the 11th century; the Saint-Eutrope basilica, also in Saintes, and the Pilgrim Hospital in Pons, built in the 12th century.
