Adjacent to the Dordogne department, Montbron is a must-see if you're spending your holidays in Charente! This delightful village, which in days gone by was fortified, still contains parts of its 15th century castle known as "le Vieux Château".
Outside this castle, you'll find the Fountain of Saint Anthoine, used in days of yore by pilgrims following St James' Way, as the town was once on a secondary route that was often used for this pilgrimage.
Leaving from the castle, follow the streets of the Rampe de la Barbacane, which was once the main entrance to the fortified town. Follow this down to the lower town, stop off at the Chapelle des Lépreux (lepers' chapel) and the church of Saint-Maurice, and try some of the local produce. Here, you simply won't have time to get bored!
Bisected east to west by the Tardoire River, the town also has two mills that are worth a visit: Menet and Chabrot. These both date back to the 19th century and are still fed by water from the river. So come and discover this village in Charente straight away, and whatever happens don't forget to see its very famous night time market, which takes place year after year on the first Friday in August!
