Visited mid June and the town was dead. There's a large car park with picnic tables and shady areas which is handy on a hot day. From the car park it's a short walk to the river and town. You can take a river cruise...More

We sailed with the hausboat along the Charente River, and the stop at this berth was one of the prettiest. Beautifully landscaped beach, quiet place, very nice restaurant nearby, interesting walk through historical town. In the morning, we made a picnic in the grass, and...More

Good swimming, nice little cafe but as it's so small, can become a little crowded with English tourists. Many people take their dogs to swim there too. There is a very good auberge close by. It's a bit pricey but good cuisine. It's on the...More

We spent a relaxed hour kayaking on a lovely calm wide river. Our 7 year old was a little small to manage the paddle, but everyone else loved it, and the kayaks felt very stable.

Petit Restaurant serving takeaway drinks, sandwiches etc is very good. Also doubles as the booking office for the boats. A great place for a picnic on the river bank, or splashing in the river. The little bakers in town is very sweet.

The 'beach' and river at Port d'Envaux is great for families of all ages - classic holiday fun. Part of the river is cordoned off for swimming, diving in etc (but read the signs), and the more adventurous can swim to the other side and...More

Great location for day out with kids. Small village with patisserie and couple restaurants. Plenty of parking when we visited in August. There is a large grass area by the river 100 yards from the swimming area which is perfect for picnics; a stand selling...More

Port D'Envaux is a great place to spend a day by the River. Sun bathe by the river, swim in the river (life guard normally in duty during the summer months), hire a boat, or a canoe, walk along the river or fish by the...More

Plenty of choice of boats here; electric, self-drive, kayak and canoe. Easy parking at the end of the village across a little bridge to your left. The little blue kiosk where you book and pay for your boat is also great for refreshments. Marked swimming-area...More

Nice place for a swim in the Charente, enjoy a snack and a drink and hire a boat to explore further.
