Circuit des Remparts
The historic hillside town on Angouleme perches majestically over the Charente river. The old town has been faithfully restored and is now the hub for bars and restaurants. Every year in September the town fills with racing enthusiasts for the Circuit des Remparts, the annual gathering of vintage and classic cars. Modern safety equipment has replaced the hay bales and wooden fences but otherwise the circuit remains unchanged since the first Circuit des Remparts race in 1939. If you decide to drive down in your own classic car, we have secure, covered parking on site.
Cognac Blues Passion Festival

B B King, Duffy, Seal, Raphael Sadiq, Jamie Cullum have all performed here in recent years.
