The source of the Bouil is hidden under the trees and its width does not reflect the legend which suggests that a cart and oxen were swallowed up there. On the small road to Chauvignac, another important source on which a pumping station is installed once fed a grain mill, and was fitted out by the Romans. The smallest pumping supplies Chenac, the other supplies 13 coastal towns. The source has a maximum flow of 1500 m³/h. The overflow goes out to sea via the Chauvignac channel.

Circuit carried out by the Departmental Hiking Committee of Charente-Maritime.
