A charming village! As its name indicates, the village stands beside the river and is an important stopover on the Flow Vélo cycle route. Don’t forget to have a stroll round the hamlets of Veillard or Margonnet …

The Château at Bourg

It dominates the village and offers an unforgettable view over the Charente. Not much remains of the feudal castle, known today as the Marnier-Lapostolle château. It’s here that the famous Grand-Marnier liqueur is distilled !

We love 🖤

The hamlet of Margonnet where you can find la rue de Fleurs – the flowers are provided by the inhabitants!

Veillard and le Romède

Take a break at Veillard where the Romède, a tributary of the Charente has created a little lake just right for a bucolic break !
You can also visit the Domaine Pautier that sells grape juice and Pineau des Charentes directly to the customer.

The Saint-Jean church in Bourg-Charente

It dates from the 12th century. Don’t miss the Romanesque cupola.
