At Segonzac (16 Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine) you can stay in a converted Cognac distillery at the self-catering gîte L’Ancienne Distillerie
In the small peaceful hamlet of Deuville just outside Cognac, in South West France, formed around a traditional Charentaise farmhouse, the gîtes have been created through the sympathetic conversion of the former distillery and the old cognac storage barns. The buildings stand in 2 ½ acres of landscaped gardens and natural parkland and are bordered on all sides by the vines of the Grande Champagne region. The 4 gîtes are named after famous Cognac houses- Remy Martin, Martell, Hennessy and Otard and sleep 2-8 people. The place is run by Jacky and Neville Jones – so speaking English will not be a problem!- and you can reserve and pay in your own currency and cancel without penalty until 2 weeks beforehand.
Cognac is the largest French Brandy appellation, made from Ugni Blanc grapes and double-distilled in copper stills. Armagnac is the other major French brandy, made further south in Gascony from a single continuous distillation.
