Canoeing can be done in several places, but especially in the river La Dronne which is the border between the Dordogne and the Charente-Maritime.
If you want to go canoeing for a day or just a few hours just follow the links below. We also present some pictures of Anja and Yaëla during their day of canoeing near Parcoul at roughly 12 miles from the campsite.
Parcoul is only 12 miles from the campsite. This is where Anja and Yaëla went for an afternoon of canoeing.
Visit the underground church in the morning and cool down on the river in the afternoon. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is only 19 miles from the campsite.
Pôle mécanique de Haute-Saintonge
It has a total lenght of 2400 yards, two 700 yard straights, 7 turns and can be found at less than 5 miles from the campsite. The circuit is mainly to test and to learn about racing in general. It seems to be one of the fastest circuits in France. Open days are organized regularly.
There is also a go-kart track with electric karts on the circuit grounds. It is one of the longest in France. Though they do not make a lot of noice they can go pretty fast. Just try it yourself !
Several churches and museums in the region are well worth a visit. There is no shortage of castles for the lovers of historical buildings. On the photo the "Château de Mirambeau" which is nowadays a restaurant.
