La Coulée d’Oc, 22 kilometre greenway

Built on the old railway line that linked Angoulême to Nontron, the Coulée d’Oc is a paradise for a family cycling trip. In a rural atmosphere with green hues, the greenway goes up the Bandiat valley, a small peaceful river. It provides a safe and gentle link from the Angoumois region to the Dordogne: a 22-kilometre asphalted route, which is closed to all motorised vehicles. And for the curious and lovers of history and heritage, there are a number of information panels along the greenway.

For cycling but not only! Ideal for a family walk with a pushchair, for wheelchair users and for rollerblading fans! Entry points with car parking and picnic tables at Le Quéroy, Chazelles, St-Germain de Montbron, Marthon and Feuillade.

For mountain bikers

The Chambon site in Eymouthiers is a 90-hectare playground, favoured by sports enthusiasts who love wild and authentic nature. The outdoor activities offered by the “Chambon Station”, a certified nature sports resort, are to be enjoyed independently. Among them, 12 mountain bike circuits adapted to all levels: from 5.3 km to 53 km, with levels of difficulty ranging from easy to difficult. Le Chambon is also the 0 point of the Tour Charente VTT. This 650 kilometre route, which is fully signposted, uses public roads as close as possible to the boundaries of the Charente department.
