This cycling trip invites you to follow the Charente from Angoulême to reach the seaside at Rochefort. Along the water you cross towns of art and history such as Cognac and Rochefort in a setting of vineyards and seaside.

The Charente is winding and the landscapes change often, very good remedy against the monotony, take advantage of the curiosities, admire the vineyards and the mansions while crossing the villages which border the river.

You are in the heart of the Cognac vineyard, a few false dishes give relief to your cycling route when you arrive in Cognac, but the stage remains pleasant. The must-see of this day is discovering Jarnac, stroll on the quai de l'Orangerie and stroll through the city. Continue along the river to reach Cognac.
The city is known around the world for its exceptional spirits. Take the time to visit the old quarter around the Château des Valois: the 15th century Lieutenancy house, the Rabayne hotel and the 16th century Javrezac hotel.

Leaving the capital of santons, the Flow Vélo crosses rolling countryside and passes through the village of Port d'Envaux and its open-air art space.

You then reach Crazannes and its castle nicknamed the "castle of the puss in boots".
Before Saint-Savinien-sur-Charente, the Pierre de Crazannes and its quarries invite a total change of scenery in the middle of lush green vegetation. Take a break in Saint Savinien, a small town full of character.
