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. Bordeaux is just a little over an hour away from Mornac holiday homes, and many vineyards are even closer. Dozens of vineyards and wineries welcome visitors in this part of France, and have facilities where patrons can taste local grape varieties, wines, and more.

                                      Beautiful rural manor house

                                      5 of 5
                                      We stayed in this beautiful rural manor house last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very tastefully decorated with three very large double bedrooms plus a smaller one. But the best thing for us was the childrens room on the top floor with 6 beds an a cot, the kids loved sleeping and playing up there, with the many toys, games and books. It's an ideal place to take children as the pool is very safe and gated off, we travelled with two 10 year olds a 3 year old. We had a wonderful time walking , relaxing by the pool and cooking in the amazing kitchen. Veronique the owner is incredibly charming and helpful too. We would definitely recommend this to fabulous property.

                                      The luxurious 'Le Bataclan' is the place to stay

                                      We were recommended this property by the hosts of my son's wedding and we could not have had a better recommendation. When we arrived at the property, we were welcomed by the owner and his wife who then showed us around the gite. Our first impression was one of absolute surprise and delight. It exceeded our expectations in so many ways. As we were shown each room we were smiling more and more as everything was so new and modern. The bed was big and very comfortable and by the end of the week we wished we could have taken it home with us. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could ask for although to be fair we did very little cooking. The bathrooms were again modern and functional. The property has two very nice en-suite bedrooms but as there were only two of us we used the one we thought was the 'master bedroom', although the other could easily be considered its equal. Outside the property we had a table and chairs for dining alfresco, which we did on most evenings as the weather was excellent. We used the heated swimming pool on most days which was provided with comfortable sun loungers. Our hosts were absolutely brilliant providing us with tour maps of interesting places to visit and also arranging a nurse to visit to dress a wound. They maintained a discrete distance from their guests allowing them the freedom of the pool area when required. We would thoroughly recommend this accomodation which must be one of the best we have stayed in.
