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.

It was spacious, modern and very comfortable. Philip and Maria were kind and friendly and couldn't do enough to help but without being overbearing. We took our 3 month old daughter with us and they were able to supply lots of convenient items like a travel cot and baby bath. The property is situated in a quiet hamlet and the peace and quiet was just what we needed. It is however within very close proximity to larger villages and a convenient supermarket. Finally, the stars at night should not be missed - spectacular! I would definitely recommend this property.

The spectacular views may be the property's star attraction - amazing sunsets (and sunrises for those of us who need to get up to take the dog out) - but at a more practical level we were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the welcome offered by Wendy and Dave (and of course Archy, the French basset hound). The ground floor is more spacious than it looks in the photos and the kitchen, although not huge, has everything you need and is kitted out to an excellent standard. The shower room has also been refurbished to a high standard. The property is ideal for a couple and would also suit a family with one child. The welcome pack provided by Wendy and Dave had everything for the hungry and thirsty traveller, including a huge pan of very tasty mince which provided spag bol on the first night and a lasagne later in the week! A lot of thoughtfulness has gone into making this a really nice place to stay.

It is just like a home from home. There was everything we needed and more for the children. The hosts were so friendly and gave great advice on what to do in the area and made sure our stay was just perfect. The swimming pool was amazing and we had loads of fun in the games room! We would love to return as there's still lots to do, we just couldn't fit it all in. The holiday really did exceed our expectations and we hope to come back.
