Explore The Region
From your base in the centre of the cognac producing region you are free to discover the delights of South West France. Whether you fancy a drive through the beautiful vine covered countryside, a day at the coast, a lazy boat trip on the river Charente or a visit to the historic towns of Cognac, Saintes, Jarnac or Angouleme everything is within easy reach. Further afield the world renowned cities of Bordeaux, Royan and La Rochelle demand a visit or perhaps the delightful island of Ile de Re will attract your attention.
For the more energetic amongst you, the area is perfect for walking and cycling but we can also offer local centres for kayaking, golf, hot air ballooning, quad biking and water parks.
However you choose to spend your time, you shouldn’t forget to take one of the tours of the famous cognac Houses and of course to sample some of the production!

Pharmacy, Bar, 2 restaurants, 2 Boulangeries and a Tourist Office.For those larger purchases and a wide choice of shops there are the towns of Cognac (12kms), Jarnac (11kms) and Angouleme (32kms).
Within a short drive of the property there are a wealth of excellent restaurants, so many that you could eat in a different one on each night of your stay and still not cover the list.
Most towns in the area have daily or weekly markets for that true French shopping experience. Larger monthly fairs, often covering the whole town, are also held.
