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.

Fantastic gîte with a beautiful pool

5 of 5
We have holidayed in France pretty much every year for the last decade and this was, (by far) the nicest gîte that we've ever stayed in. The property was immaculate, spotlessly clean and the huge pool was an absolute dream. We swam every day and even late at night which was truly special. The gîte was fully equipped and finding 'provisions' in the kitchen upon arrival enabled us to relax immediately with a glass of wine - deeply appreciated after the 8 hour drive from Calais. What really stood out for us, were all the little extra things that were provided that we wouldn't normally expect with holiday rental; charcoal and firelighters for the BBQ, our bedding was changed after the first week, plenty of kitchen and loo roll, lots of surprises in the fridge upon arrival, washing machine tabs and washing up liquid. All little things that add up and make a holiday more relaxing. Location was fantastic and there's plenty to see nearby. Highlights were; the beautiful village of Talmont-sur-Gironde near Royan on the coast, Cognac, Brantôme and the amazing subterranean church at Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. Maggie & Alan made us and our little dog Woodie, feel totally relaxed and welcome. Their useful advice and warmth will encourage us to return in the future. We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely gîte to anybody - it's perfect.

Fantastic Stay

5 of 5
We had a great stay at the River View Cottage. All the needed amenities and more are there. We were 3 + our dog and we had a great time even if the weather was not top notch at that time. The Pool is fantastic and we used it as soon as the weather allowed it. I would strongly recommend this cottage and Sam & Mary's location for people looking for relaxation and to discover the nice Périgord Vert region. We had trips to Angouleme, Périgueux, Villars Cave... Go for it you will not be disappointed. If we plan to come back in the region we will certainly give it a GO !
