Cognac the town, where Cognac the spirit is produced. The most famous Brandy in the world. 12 kilometers from our house in Jarnac and I have never really blogged about it.
It's our go to place for a quick meal out, bigger selection of cuisines, from Michelin to Kebab and more of an ethnic variety.
If you like the feeling of old french towns, this is one place that will make you very happy. Located on the river Charente, the town has a very pedestrian friendly center with all the sights, smells and attractions we love so much about being here. Plenty of shops and of course all the Cognac producers you can visit.
Visit Wikipedia if you want more details, below are some pictures to entice you for a visit. or of course the local tourist office site:
