Saintes is about a half hour train ride South East from Rochefort, it is also found along the Charente….the river that Rochefort is on. BUT, in Saintes, the water is a nice bluey green colour, rather than the muddy brown colour we have in Rochefort. If it wasn't such a gloomy, misty day it would have been much ...
