Walks and Outdoor Hikes

Here is a small list of sites to visit with your family and children.

Going out for a walk under the Charente-Maritime sun, breathing in the country air, walking along paths through the vineyards, strolling along the Way of St. James, discovering castles with their gardens, walking along a lake in the middle of the forest, cycling or horse riding, the choices are endless! :)
