Pons Town

Soaring 30 metres above Pons town square on its rocky outcrop, the 12th century Donjon provides an amazing platform to take in the panoramic views of the river valley and the surrounding countryside and to soak up the atmosphere of the wonderful Charente-Maritime.

Ideally situated at the heart of the Maritime Department, Pons is a perfect place to spend a few days visiting the historic Roman town of Saintes, the thermal springs of Jonzac and not least the internationally known producers of Cognac in and around the town of Cognac itself, only 25 minutes away. And as if that isn't enough, the beautiful Gironde estuary and its beaches are just 30 minutes away and the delights of Royan or La Rochelle are within an hour's drive.
