Driving to the Charente…

The French road network is  very good, and apart from major cities is generally quiet.  Charente is no different, and with the N10 running north to south, and the N141 from east to west getting around the department is very easily.

There are no toll routes in the Charente, but when driving here from the English Channel ports,  you have the choice of the ‘scenic’ but longer free routes or the quicker toll routes.

DIstance and approximate driving times from the channel ports using toll roads where available.
