... br> Then on to Cognac - and yes, this IS where the famous double-distilled drink is made. We found another France Passion site, (more about that in a minute) then left one of the motorhomes there and trundled into town, where we did a tour of the Hennessy cognac house. This included a boat trip across the river, as part of the tour takes place in the cellars where the barrels of cognac are stored. 2% of the cognac ...

The other day we worked out how much toilet paper we would use, we did the same with Cous Cous, rice, cerals etc. and we have started serious buying as a result.

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!
