Welcome to COGNAC
We welcome you at Angouleme TGV at 2 pm and drive you at your hotel in Cognac where we’ll stay for three nights. After a bike fitting and a tour orientation, we explore this unique town settled along the Charente river.
How many small French towns can boast, like Cognac, of being famous all over the world? Rich, bourgeois, historical, royal (François 1st was born there), Cognac is a special case in Charente. Cognac remains above all the city of the precious beverage where the great names (Hennessy, Otard, Martell…) have made the reputation of the town ! Wherever roofs and walls are blackened, it is the action of a fungus feeding on alcohol vapours, the angels’ share!
