Port D'Envaux

On the river Charente, an excellent spot for all water sports, including boat hire, kayaking & paddle boarding. With a beach and pontoon, you can swim safely in the river. A couple of lovely restaurants in the village & a great snack bar by the river. Great place to be active or just to chill

Also near by are Les Lapidales, amazing modern sculputures, The Chateau de Crazannes and St Savinien - all worth a visit
