Very friendly hotel, interesting rooms, nice decoration! (At least I liked it. :-) )
The breakfast was satisfying, except they didn't have espresso café. The heating was also very good!

... br> We flew back to Bordeaux in the morning. After resting for a day we headed north in the morning. We found a little town with a castle and a few different things to see. We walked into town and found a tourist office. They could speak very little English, told us they had no maps and gave us an information sheet all in French. The town was small and quaint.

Dana and I went to see the Frigate “Hermione” that was used by the French and
more specifically ordered by a wealthy man named La Fayette to be built and was
used in 1780 to help the Americans win their independence.
L’Hermione was built in Rochefort (where I’m living!) in
1779. It took 11 months for them to build. After she sailed to Boston to ...
... to take a tour of this factory, however you can
only make reservations through the tourist office and the tourist office was
closed for renovations. Apparently Dana and I chose the wrong weekend to go
exploring in Cognac.
Putting the disappointment aside, Cognac had a very
interesting downtown area. Again, this was a place where only pedestrians could
walk. It was cobble stones and there were some very cute, typical French buildings
