Set in a delightful curve of the Charente and in the heart of the cognac vineyards, Châteauneuf-sur-Charente is a fine place to stay for families or with friends. Known for its river stop, islets, flower-covered bridge and the richness of its history, Châteauneuf-sur-Charente appeals to lovers of nature and history.



The perfect spot to wander around, this charming town is home to a jewel of Romanesque art, the Saint-Pierre church. It dates from the 12th century, was revised in the 15th and then restored in the 19th. Also worthy of your attention are the 9th century Saint-Surin church that was built by shepherds as well as the 16th century Hôtel du Tillet. Don’t miss the Napoleonic-style Town Hall and the Hôtel du Renclos.
The Tourism Office in Châteauneuf-sur-Charente has thought of everything: a circular walk that can be downloaded or on request from Destination Cognac’s offices.
