Rural Charente

Take a trip to the lovely Charente countryside. Inside information on what to see in rural Charente in South-West France. From the river to pretty villages and historical Roman sites. People who adore the Charente, love its honey coloured stone, its terracotta roof tiles, its warm micro-climate but also it's laid back sleepy vibe, reminiscent of the languid river that gives its name.

Under the Bages boardwalks

Take an afternoon stroll across Narbonne's saltwater lagoons. A change from the beach, this offers a completely different landscape and is great for wildlife lovers and those wanting to get away from the crowds of the beaches. Just 7km outside the city of Narbonne in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, the village of Bages offers an interesting alternative to a visit to the local beach.
