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 Weather in Mornac

Mornac enjoys high temperatures above 15°C between April and October each year. Those heading to the beach will want to do so in July or August, as this is when sea temperatures are at their most pleasant. Rain is common throughout the year, with each month averaging around 15 days of precipitation per month. The winters in Mornac are chilly, but seldom dip below freezing and holiday villas in Mornac are heated for colder days and nights.

There is plenty of space for everyone to find a corner on your own if you so wish although at the same time being able to enjoy family time without feeling cramped. The outside space is great for young and old alike. This is indeed somewhere you can stay at any time of the year and feel comfortable in. We were given excellent customer service by the owners who were approachable when asked, but at the same time discreet and mindful of giving us privacy. In particular, it was great to have good kitchen equipment to use as I often find at other holiday homes this is what can let the property down. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again when in the Charente, and indeed contemplating a stay again in 2017!

The gite was decorated for Christmas, warm and cosy when we arrived with a welcoming fire burning in the wood burner… we couldn’t have asked for a better welcome! Nicky and Richard were always available to help and provide advice about day trips and information about the surrounding area. They kindly offered to light the pizza oven so we could have a pizza party one evening. The gite was great for our big group: spacious, clean, comfortable and filled with extra treats like toys for the children to play with. The games room was a big hit too. The layout of the complex meant we had our privacy despite other guests staying at the same time. A definite recommend.

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.
