Things to do in Mornac

Holiday homes in Mornac are ideally located for visitors who want to get the most out of their holiday to France. It is extremely close to the famous wine-growing region of Bordeaux, as well as beautiful seaside towns like La Rochelle, as well as a multitude of fairy tale chateaus and other sites of cultural interest.

-Maison Hennessy is one of the popular attractions in the area. This region of France may be best known for its wine, but it is also where cognac rose to prominence. Not far from Mornac holiday apartments is the town of Cognac, where the cognac brand Hennessy still operates. Visitors can tour the company’s warehouse facilities and learn how cognac is crafted before taking a boat trip across the river to visit Hennessy’s museum and boutique.

-The Musee d’Angouleme is a good place to gain a perspective on the history of this part of France. The museum, in Angouleme not far from Mornac, which is housed within a beautiful historic building, contains exhibits on the archaeological significance of the area, as well as many examples of fine art and artefacts from around the world.

-The Monolithic Church of Saint Jean of Aubeterre is an impressive church carved from a limestone cave in the 12th century, and much of it still remains intact nearly 900 years on. Visitors gain access to an interior built on an enormous scale with numerous hallways, vaulted ceilings, and curved archways.

-Chateau de la Rochefoucauld is beautiful both on the inside and out. This stunning French chateau looks like it belongs to a fairy tale princess. Complete with priceless artefacts and heirlooms, the chateau is still owned by the Duke and Duchess of Rochefoucauld. Each room in the chateau is exquisitely decorated and is a photographer’s dream.

-Vineyard Tours are an essential feature and no trip to Mornac would be complete without at least one.

The house is comfortable and was situated perfectly for us. Mr. Blanloeuil is a welcoming, helpful and personable host, and we enjoyed his company so much we can't wait to return. We miss looking out the window and seeing the beautiful chestnut tree. Thank you for a lovely vacation! Bien cordialement, Kim & Paul

Dave and Wendy have thought of everything and ensured our holiday was perfect in every way. The gite is in a fabulous hilltop position with stunning views from the gite, huge fully enclosed garden and luxurious (heated!) pool and surrounding terrace. There are fabulous walks from the door and surrounding areas. The nearest town of Villebois Lavallette is lovely with a hilltop chateau that can be seen from the gite. It also has a great super market and it's only a short drive away. There's also great markets and Brocante markets in the surrounding towns. It was wonderful to have our 2 weeks here with our 2 dogs and they loved having Archie and Eric as great playmates and knowing they couldn't escape! Dave and Wendy have everything right here and also great company if you want company. The huge skies, rolling countryside views and stunning sunsets are really special. The you both and we will see you again as soon as possible!
