Ruffec is a small but well developed town offering all of the day to day amenities that you need. On the Place d’Armes, you will find the town hall dating from the 1830s and around this square is the historical centre of Ruffec and the church Saint-André with its decorative facade. The Lien river flows through the town and along it you will find the old lavoir (communal wash area) which was built in the 19th century. The river also presents the possibility to paddle or to go canoeing and kayaking during the warmer months.

The city also holds a world famous International Comic Book Festival each January, which attracts approximately 200 000 visitors! 

A few must-see places in the department include Aubeterre-sur-Dronne (99 km) which is listed as one the Plus Beaux Villages de France (one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France), Cognac (65 km) itself and La Rochefoucauld (44 km) with its magnificent chateau.
