Named after the Charente River, the department of Charente in southwestern France is one of the original 83 regions created during the French Revolution in 1790. The two largest towns in the department are Angoulême and Cognac, with the latter giving its name to one of the world’s best-known types of brandy. Francis I (King of France between 1515 and 1547) was born in Cognac Castle, and the main square in the town is named after him. He granted the town the right to trade salt along the river, guaranteeing strong commercial success, which led to the development of wine and brandy in the town. In the 18th Century, the river Charente provided important links with coastal shipping routes both for traditional businesses and for newly evolving ones such as paper good and iron smelting.
There are six vineyard areas around the Cognac area, which are considered to vary in quality. Most houses in the area have barrels of Cognac dating back to the 19th century sitting in the cellars, as the longer they are allowed to mature in oak barrels, the higher the grade level and therefore the higher the price. The region is one the largest producers of Oysters and Mussels in France (more than 50% of the French oyster-production) and has easy access to large towns and cities such as La Rochelle, which has its own airport, and Saintes, both of which known for their fishing and beaches, as well as rich architecture. Charente has 40% more hours of sunshine than the UK and have much lower prices of houses. The department is known for its Melon Charentais, accompanied by Pineau de Charentes, and sometimes with Cognac, a real taste of the region. Nicknamed the ‘Tuscany of France’, Charente has lots of idyllic villages with Roman churches, set in hilly landscapes with beautiful vineyards and stretches of water.
