What better way to discover the beautiful region of Charente, situated in western France, than in a hot air balloon? Fly up, up and away from the bustle of modern-day living and enjoy a bird's-eye view of the historical treasures and sights that the region has to offer.
Meet with your pilot in the village of Segonzac, just outside Cognac. After a quick briefing, board your hot air balloon and fly over the stunning Charente countryside.
Depending on where the wind takes you, you will discover the spectacular Cognac vineyards, the Charente River or the town of Angouleme surrounded by historic castles, from up above.
At the end of the flight, you will be served a celebratory glass of the local 'Pineau des Charentes'.
Activity recommended at sunrise.
