Explore Cognac

Between land and water

Cultural heritage

All around Cognac and its vineyards, the essential sites of the Charente region, from Angoulême to La Rochelle and the offshore islands, offer you the chance to enrich and extend your stay.

16100 Cognac

Breathe in the salty, energizing sea air as you head to Fort Boyard on a cruise to get as close as possible to the famous stone ship. Continue your maritime exploration at the Arsenal des Mers adventure park in Rochefort before heading to the Antilles de Jonzac water park. If you have kids, La Rochelle Aquarium and La Palmyre Zoo are definitely on the agenda. If for you, travel is all about art and history, a trip to La Rochelle will take you directly to the top of its emblematic towers, while an escape to Angoulême, designated a “creative city” by UNESCO, will be an opportunity to plunge into the world of comic art at the Angoulême comic book museum. Are you ready for an exceptional journey?
