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.

A beautiful region of France where the local were very friendly. The villa was fairly well equipped and the Housekeeper and Handyman, Andrea & Phil were always on hand to assist with anything. Tip for Dog Owners - I would not recommend the local Vet in Mansle though, they forgot to sign one part of the Pet Passport which led to a self guided tour around Calais at 7am in the morning trying to find a vet that would sign the pet passport. Thus resulting in missing the allocated tome slot for channel tunnel train and double the vet fees. There are supermarkets in Mansle and nearby Aigre and also a number of restaurants; note check opening times for these restaurants esp on a Monday! Otherwise the food eating out is of good quality and well priced. I would recommend this place to friends or family, it is large enough for a couple of families to stay there.

The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Phil and Maria were extremely helpful and gave us great tops about local walks and restaurants. We would love to come back!!!
