Leaving from Talmont, the walk takes you to the Logis de La Fond which has been transformed into a castle by the addition of a pavilion and outbuildings including a square dovecote.
- The Canal of the 2 seas by bike
Possibility of organized visit to the Moulin du Fâ. At the end of the walk, you can admire a beautiful view of the estuary and land on the Caillaud cliff to enjoy the panorama offered over Talmont.
A listed site, Talmont has retained its plan of a medieval walled town built in 1284 by Edward of England. The Sainte-Radegonde church, built on the cliff overlooking the estuary, is a jewel of Saintonge Romanesque art. In the old school, a museum presents traditional fishing in the estuary and the history of the Talmont site.
The carrelets (or fisheries) are part of the coastal landscape of Charente-Maritime. The fisherman lowers and raises this large square net using a winch. It's a game of chance each time the net is brought in: you can fish for mullet all year round, shad in the spring and bass in the summer.
Circuit carried out by the Departmental Hiking Committee of Charente-Maritime.
