Cognac, the town of Francis I and famous for its prestigious liqueur, is located 70 km away from the campsite.


A place of art and history...

Cognac evokes the River Charente, walking along the river, a barge trip, and visit of the old town.

Stroll along 'Rue Grande', the main street in the Middle Ages with its stone and timber-framed houses, the most famous of which is the famous ‘maison de la lieutenance’ from the 15th century.

Since the 17th century, Cognac is closely linked to its famous eau-de-vie.

A visit of the riverbanks is not to be missed. During your visit to Cognac, do not hesitate to enter one of the many wineries and taste, in moderation, the precious cognac liqueur.
