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.

It's set in a stunning location and it's grounds are spectacular. The front area has a beautiful bistro table so you can sit in the sun until early evening. The rear courtyard is perfect for dining al fresco until late evening. Complete with barbecue area, large canopy and a hot tub your evening is complete. The area at the pool is just perfect. Clean and well maintained surrounded by stunning countryside makes your morning swim a memorable experience. A shaded terrace is most welcome early afternoon when the local temperature can reach over 30* The interior of the house is like 'home from home'. Immaculately kept and up to date commodities. Plenty of space for all your family and friends. TV room to relax of an evening, a cosy fire room and a dining area big enough for everyone to dine together chatting about their day. The owners are extremely approachable and friendly. Prompt and professional response all the time. I can't tell you enough how good this property is, I can't wait to return in September!
