Chai Meukow, a

Chai Meukow, a restaurant within the Cognac House Meukow in the centre of town. Lunch only with a no-choice menu that’s fabulous. Reservation is obligatory (online at their website) you can also do a tour and tasting. Gourmet specialities: Le Gourmet Charentaise. A terrific selection of local specialities and amazing liqueurs and cognacs. I spent 45 minutes in here admiring the heaving shelves and checking out the goods some of which I’ve never seen anywhere else. Seriously drool-worthy and perfect for souvenirs to take home (if they make it!)… (22 rue du canton) Where to stay Quai des Pontis is situated in the heart of Cognac, on the Charente River. It’s a magical setting with three different types of accommodation from gypsy caravans to cabins on stilts on the river’s edge and cosy wooden lodges. They’re all equipped with mod cons such as DVD’s, LCD television sets, Nespresso machines. But it’s the natural beauty of the resort that makes it a knockout location and really brings it home that the countryside laps right up to the edges of the town. There’s loads to do here from fishing, swimming, exploring the surrounding countryside or the short walk into town,. Discover what’s on and things to do in Cognac at www.tourism-cognac.com.
