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.

The gite was great, exceptionally presented and had everything we needed, and more…… Our kids loved the outside space, from the swimming pool to the swings to the sand pit. Our kids loved playing with Clovis & Scarlett, not forgetting Curly! Nathalie is the perfect hostess, simply beyond our expectations. If you are looking to stay around this area, just book with Nathalie you won’t be disappointed.

The setting is amazing - complete peace and quiet is guaranteed. The house itself was spacious and wonderfully finished with two good sized bedrooms, a huge main living room, surperbly equipped country kitchen, two bathrooms and a fabulous swimming pool area. Phil and Maria couldn't do enough for us and were so friendly and generous with their time. They did so much to make it a memorable trip. The property is in a tiny hamlet in stunning French countryside. You can lounge round the pool all day and have BBQs at night as the sun sets across the fields. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anybody.
