La Flow Vélo® is a 290km cycle path that runs from Thiviers to Île d’Aix and offers cyclists a leisurely cycling trip through the Périgord and Charentes countryside.

The route consists of approximately 10 stages packed with a wealth of cultural and historic sights.


Once past Angoulême, and heading towards Saintes and Rochefort, you can stop off in the heart of Cognac’s wine region. In the town itself you’ll find trading houses – maisons de négoces – from some of the most famous names in the world of cognac, while out in the vineyards, winemakers and cellarmasters invite you to discover their family traditions.


Be sure to get off your bike and uncover the secrets behind the “l’eau-de-vie of the Gods” and the know-how behind its distillation before you set off to explore the charms of the Charentes from the comfort of your saddle.
