Welcome to the official site for Tourism in Vals de Saintonge
the best holidays that nature has to offer
Nestling between the valleys of the Boutonne and the Charente, in Charente-Maritime, the Vals de Saintonge are an invitation to benefit from the dolce vita Charentaise. You’ll find a wide range of activities that enable you to switch off and get away for a short break, a week or longer. A destination that offers unspoilt nature, ideally suited for adventures on foot or by bike, boat or canoe. Cradle of Romanesque art, home to two wonders of UNESCO’s St James of Compostella World Heritage programme that will inspire lovers of heritage and culture. Gourmets will seek out the vineyards that are home to the secrets of that most famous of spirits: cognac.
