Tourism in the Charente Catchment Area

On the coast, outside the basin (Marennes, Royan, Oléron island), summer tourism is very developped. Sometimes, tourism is a way to put into relief the agriculture and the breeding (La cité de l’Huître, in Marennes).

Water tourism is important in Rochefort, but tourism in general stays low-developped inside the catchment area (but not in the summer). However, this sector is flourishing, with the expansion of cultural rural tourism. In south Charente, tourism breaks are more and more successful. More en more, river tourism settles down, and many leisure areas appear (thanks to the success of river cruises and canoe). In Saint-Simon, you can also navigate on a “gabarre”.

The Haute-Charente lakes offer many leisure activities.
