Charente: a river, a department

Located in the southwest of France, the department Charente is part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. The department takes its name from the Charente river, a river which crosses it from East to West, from Angoulême to the Ocean. Rent a boat in Charente to explore the unique landscapes of the region!

With its past history and an important architectural heritage, Charente was during the 19th century a stronghold of the regional economy, thanks in particular to commerce carried on by the river and other industries.

The slightly hilly landscape of the Charente greatly favored the construction of castles and other means of defense.

It is precisely for this reason that you can walk near many buildings. For example, go visit the famous castle of La Rochefoucauld located in the town of the same name, the castle of Rochebrune in Etagnac, the castle of Bourg-Charente which dates from the beginning of the 17th century. In the commune of Montignac-Charente, you can admire the remains of the Montignac castle (only part of the keep remains).

So, to dive in the Charente department, nothing better than sailing on the river of the same name. Renting a boat to explore the river is undoubtedly the best way to visit the department, and to discover the different landscapes that border the river.




How much does it cost to rent a river boat?

On the Charente, you will mostly find barges for rental. For a day, count on average €283. Prices vary between €155 for the simplest models and €697 for the largest and best-equipped barges.

To guarantee you the best experience, from reservation to rental, we advise you to contact the owner of the boat using Click&Boat messaging. He will be able to answer your questions, and maybe even give you directions on the best places to go by boat.

Whether with family or friends, renting a boat on the Charente guarantees you unforgettable memories.


Boat rental with Click&Boat

With Click&Boat, easily rent a boat in Charente. You can easily rent a motor boat, a semi-rigid boat, or a barge.

With three different types of rental possible - classic navigation, co-navigation as well as dockside rental - you will inevitably find your ideal boat in the formula that suits you.

Rent a boat without a license

On Click&Boat you will find a large number of boats without license. The owner of the boat will certainly give you a short training session to explain how to navigate the Charente. Then you can begin your journey in complete safety.


Where to sail on the Charente?

Departing from Angoulême, Cognac or Saintes, you can navigate very easily on the Charente river.

By renting a small barge or a motor boat, you can go up the river and anchor near the banks and small beaches that dot the Charente. You can also take the opportunity to discover the charming town of Jarnac, the birthplace of François Mitterrand!

Going to the west and the Atlantic Ocean, you will come across the small port of Rochefort. From there, you can consider a longer navigation and thus reach the Pertuis d'Antioche and sail near La Rochelle, Fort Boyard or even the Île de Ré and the Île d'Oléron.

Renting a catamaran or sailboat from the Charente estuary will allow you, without difficulty, to go on a cruise on the Atlantic and to join Spain in the south or Brittany in the north. The location of the Charente estuary is therefore ideal for reaching several destinations, whether in France or internationally.

To rent a boat in Charente, all you need to do is create an account on Click&Boat then search for the boat you want on the platform.

Once found, all you have to do is contact its owner and ask them all the questions you need. He will also be happy to show you the best navigation spots on the Charente or the Atlantic.


Historical monuments to see in Charente

The Royal Abbey of Saint -Jean d'Angély

Symbol of the religious heritage of Charente-Maritime, this abbey is also listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. The Abbey is also part of the route to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle. If you want to know more, visits are organized in the summer.

The Arch of Germanicus in the city of Saintes

If you navigate to Saintes, you will have the pleasure of seeing this arch from the water. More than 14 meters high, its height can be impressive, especially if you admire the Arc from your boat. Originally, it marked the main entrance to the Roman city. Its two arches marked the direction of traffic when it was upstream of the bridge which crossed the Charente. The ancient road linked Saintes to Lyon.

Admire the Romanesque churches

You will find many of them during your visit to Charente. Although it is always interesting to visit them, some of them have been diverted from their original function. Indeed, some now host artistic events, such as the Abbey of Saint Armant de Boixe.

Others have become true symbols of technology, such as the Abbaye aux Dames, which offers an immersive visit using a digital headset. You will then be able to relive the greatest musical moments of the Abbaye aux Dames. To prolong the experience, do not hesitate to take advantage of the gardens and deck chairs that are available.


Opt for slow tourism

If there is an advantage on vacation, it's being able to rest, without imposing schedules. Thanks to river tourism, slow down the pace and fully enjoy a timeless moment. The landscape passes slowly before you, the stress escapes quickly. So, don’t wait any longer, and choose barge rental for your river vacation. You are just a few clicks away from your next river cruise!
