The town is famous all over the world thanks to cognac, the grape-based spirit that has been made here for the past 300 years. Jarnac, birthplace of Francois Mitterrand, is just 4km away and is a perfect way to while away some time next to the river or visit Courvoisier.

The coastal town of Royan is around an hour away for those who like to visit the seaside.

To the rear of the property are large gardens wandering down beside the stream. A number of tables and chairs are provided in a variety of areas throughout the gardens. The gardens are shared with the other gites in the complex but there is always a place to be by yourself.

Two parking spots are provided next to the gite in the courtyard. The courtyard has camera security and electric gates. There is a further parking area around 50m away for additional vehicles if necessary.

Visitor suitability

The garden is open to the stream so we do suggest that very small children would need to be supervised.
