About this experience & host

Enrich your sightseeing tour of Cognac by renting an all-terrain electric scooter. Head for the small village of Saint-Simon, built on the banks of the Charente. A unique know-how was deployed there: the manufacture of barges. These are small boats that were used to transport goods and men on the river. La Maison des Gabarriers will invite you to immerse yourself in the past of this astonishing heritage. The barrels of cognac were transported on these separate ships.

The Flow Vélo circuit allows you to discover the charming banks of the Charente. You can cross bridges, but also locks while marveling at the historical beauty of the village and its church. Founded in 1875, Maison Braastad welcomes you to a magnificent estate, located on the banks of the Charente. You can taste tasty recipes based on the local speciality.
