The capital of Charente in south west France is Angoulême, a city overlooking the river Charente and as such, has earned the nickname the ‘balcony of the south west'. The city of Angoulême is soaked in culture and there are plenty of sites to see all around the city.
Car hire from Angoulême is highly recommended as it makes travelling across the city easier. Highlights of any visit include the Domaine de Boisbuchet, which currently houses an exhibition on architecture and is definitely worth a visit.
Most famously, the city is home to one of the world's most famous comic book festivals, The International Comics Festival, which attracts high profile creators and artists from around the world every year. If you like to get your geek on, you'll want to look into hiring a car in Angoulême and driving to each location for the festival, soaking it up and getting the most out of it.
The Musee de Alfred de Vigny is definitely a place for the book worms amongst visitors, being the former home of the famous poet of the same name. You can take a tour around it, or simply walk around, discovering the places he may have written his poems.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
