Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spotted this canoe club when driving through Cognac and returned a few days later. My daughter, aged 6, and I hired paddle board for 30 mins for a very reasonable 5 euros and bobbed about on the river which is very calm so a perfect introduction to paddle boarding. The people running the canoe club were very friendly, helpful (spoke good English, helpful for us with our ‘poor’ school Frenchman) and let us use their toilets to change in.
Later that day we met with friends and after lunch we went back and hired an electric boat for 8 people for, again a reasonable sum of, 35 euros. We had a great time calmly buzzing down the river for an hour watching swans swimming along, local fishermen on the banks & kingfishers fly past. The team at the canoe club were once again very helpful giving us a map and advising us to go down river and steer round two islands before heading back. All in all we had a great experience and would recommend this business as helpful and reasonable.

A truly wonderful day paddling down the Charente river from Jarnac back to Cognac. We were dropped off about 11.30 by a really friendly guide who gave us hints and tips to make the best of the day. We saw amazing wildlife, a Goliath orange Heron, a swan that flew past us gracefully and hundreds of dragon fly, damsel flies and the odd hummingbird. The water is clear and safe. Fun at the end going down the canoe slide !. Park near the canoe club for free all day. Also great if you are planning on going into town. This is a well run business with great equipment which compliments the day.

Perfect on a boiling hot day in Autumn. We weren't sure it was going to be open but luckily it was. The river flowing westwards isn't too interesting apart from gliding past the odd Cognac manufacturer, but the river upstream, eastwards is really pretty though unless you use the lock you can't get to it too far in the electric boats. If you are kayaking you can reach the upper level though watch out, you have to haul the boats out of the water and carry them some distance to reach a safe spot further up river, this is quite a trek and not easy with little children.
