Situated on the gentle banks of the Charente, Jarnac remembers the time when its port welcomed salt and wine in abundance. The town quickly became a large trade center because of its position in the middle for the production area for the well known" life water" of Cognac.
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday: 08.30 to 12.30 and 14:00 to 18:00.
