Cognac Featured Hotels

The countryside in and around Cognac is bursting with natural trails, aged paths and changes in elevation that appeal to builders and the recreational sportsperson. Landscapes such as that among Cognac chateaux are unrivaled in Europe, at least among those villages who boast many original structures and uncompromised agricultural properties. The agriculture business was long the main sustenance for the Cognac region, keeping farms and towns fed with economic stability well through the 18th century. During the 18th century, however, the drink Cognac became an international sensation and began to pump its own share of revenue into the community. Cognac chateaux became a desirable purchase for those living within close proximity to the region and those coming down the road from other more densely populated areas of France. Now, with easy access to several significant airports, reaching Cognac is a simple task and encourages tourists and vacationers.

The history of Cognac is still evident through the lush landscapes free of manipulation and the old stone Cognac chateaux dotting the countryside.
