Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

L'Ancienne Distillerie is located in the Charente, a region which is dissected by the beautiful river Charente. With it's gentle rolling countryside covered with vines, the architecture of the Romanesque churches and chateaux and the pretty villages and hamlets, this is the perfect region to explore by car, bike or on foot. Peaceful and relaxing this is the perfect location for families, friends and couples. The town of Cognac is famous for it's namesake product and a visit to the region would not be complete without a tour of one of the many producers. Maybe even try some of the local liqueur - Pineau - made with Cognac and grape juice.

In the summer the sleepy towns and villages come alive with local festivals and events such as the international Jazz and Blues Festival in Cognac, the classical concerts on the beach at Royan and the World Ballooning championships along the river valley. If you fancy a day at the beach then the area can offer you the unspoilt sandy bays and beaches of the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic coast.

Whatever your interests you are assured of a memorable holiday.

Cognac

L'Ancienne Distillerie is perfectly positioned for visits to all the major towns and tourist attractions in the area such as La Rochelle, Cognac, Saintes, Angouleme, Bordeaux. St Emillion and many more.

If you are looking for something more energetic, then there is horse riding, kayaking, quad biking and water skiing all within a short drive. We also have a number of bikes for our guests to use.

Sample some cognac, Pineau or the wiones of Blaye, Bordeaux, St Emillion....

All too much? Then simply enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful area. Relax by the pool, spend the day at the beach, wander across the vines to the local boulangerie for your croissants or try some of the many excellent local restaurants.
