Angoulême: ideas for a family stay
Spending the weekend at the Première Classe hotel in Angoulême? Make a choice from among the many options the city has to offer. For example, start by walking around the ramparts to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view. Then discover the Saint-Pierre cathedral, an absolute must in Poitou-Charentes. Then head to the town hall, built on the site of an old castle, where the medieval keep remains. Also make a stop at the covered market noted for its glass and wrought iron architecture and to discover the local specialities. Finally, don't miss the Comic Strip Museum and its unique collection retracing the history of the ninth art.
Booking a room for a week in one of our budget hotels will allow you to extend your exploration of the city. Among its monuments, admire the Notre-Dame d'Obézine church or the Cordeliers chapel. Other interesting places to visit are the Fonds régional d'Art contemporain de Poitou-Charentes or the Musée du Papier, not forgetting the Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation which offers a fascinating history lesson. You can also take advantage of your stay to get some fresh air in the Charente region. For example, the coulée verte runs along the Charente River between Angoulême and Saint-Yrieix, near one of our budget Première Classe hotels.
Have a great family vacation in Angoulême! While a visit to the comic book museum is a must, you can also amaze your children by going in search of the twenty painted walls of the city, signed by artists such as Morris, Zep or Franquin. For outdoor activities, head to the Saint-Yrieix lake for swimming in summer, and the Charente countryside for canoeing or mountain biking.
