The Arts and History Cruise

Charente, France

The Arts and History Cruise overview

Head eastward on the River Charente to beautiful villages with cafés, historic sites, museums and eclectic shops. The 1,000-year-old abbey in Bassac and 12th-century St. Pierre Cathedral in Angoulême reflect the rich history of the region, which is always apparent in the narrow streets and the ancient market squares. Charente boating in France ushers you into incredible pastoral beauty.

We loved the Charente the first time way back 16 years ago, same this time: manual locks, peaceful cruising, beautiful scenery.
