Getaway along the riverside

From Châteauneuf-sur-Charente to Merpins’ bridge, the river wanders off through the lands into several small arms shaded by natural hedges.

 

It will take you past Bassac’s Abbey, the bald cypresses on the banks of the “Koweit arm”, and the beautiful mansions lining the route.

Your ride will be marked by channels allowing you to cross the old mills’ dikes without disembarking.

We chose two-seater Canadian canoes, combining comfort and authenticity, which are fitted with braided strap seats and wooden paddles.

And why not combine it with cycling by choosing the canoe + E-bike combo?
