  • I had the chance to experience this space during an afternoon of week. Everything was quiet and conducive to discover the elements proposed. Virtual crossing the Charente, loved it! A lot of fun and most historic spaces for lovers. The welcome is nice. See :)

  • A little away from the settlement and downtown, it's something to see. The metal structure, under renovation at present, impressive by its simple and dominant form above this muddy Charente. It's like iron, high perch, sought to move away as possible to the liquid element, so that it does not oxide. Take the opportunity to follow the path that winds through the rushes, especially if it's nice, as was the case for us.

  • We visited the site of the bridge ferry, unique survivor in France. Work ongoing changing slightly the landscape but it's worth the detour, the small museum just beside is free and allows you to do their homework, enjoy your visit

  • Very nice discovery. Worth the drive. The site is lovely and fine interpretive centre.

  • We recommend that you visit theatralitsee. "Guides-actors" are very good in their roles, special mention to Suzanne Simoneau... A visit which is interesting from the point of view of what to know about this kind of work of art in its historical and geographical context. We expect the completion of the work (2019) to review the ferry in its original state.

  • Home of the ferry which is located on the side Echillais. This place is a must visit this place in addition to the crossing on the nacelle of the ferry. The transporter is currently under renovation bridge, visit this House of the ferry is really essential.
