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 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.

Everything has been thought of to make a relaxing stay. The outside area was also excellent - comfortable lounge furniture and barbeque together with pretty gardens and of course the superb pool. Maggie and Alan were excellent hosts and made us feel like welcome guests. We had a fantastic stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this gite to anyone.

The house is tastefully furnished,very clean and with everything you could possibly need . Aline and Cedric are charming hosts, there if you need them and unseen if you don't. Cedric explained the history of the old distillery and island. They live in a wonderful location with charming villages all around and great walks for the dog . The river at the bottom of the garden is full of wildlife , beavers ducks swans and fish. We will return one summer to sample the island house to swim in the river !
