Rich history of the Cognac

As one might expect, the town of Cognac is the centerpiece of the Cognac region.
The large cognac houses along the banks of the Charente in the town of Cognac, where the old streets attest to the city's rich history, combined with the surrounding Roman villages, vineyards and slow-flowing Charente, truly give you that genuine French feeling.

A visit to this region is a memorable outing for the entire family, and of course you are welcome to take a souvenir bottle of brandy back to your holiday home.
