About the property

Set in the heart of the Cognac region and surrounded on all sides by the vines of the 'Grande Champagne', this former cognac distillery offers you the highest standard of accommodation and service. One of 4 properties on site each is independent with a private terrace but share the wonderful landscaped gardens, BBQ areas, parkland, pool and games room. Each property has an individual style and retains a wealth of original features such as exposed beams and stonework. L'Ancienne Distillerie sits on the edge of a small hamlet but is still only 2kms from the supermarket and 10mins from the delights of Cognac town with it's tourist sites and multiple restaurants and bars. The gites can be rented together in any combination or individually.

The gite L'Ancienne Distiilerie- Remy Martin was originally the old grape pressoir building and has been converted into a wonderful, comfortable and spacious house that sleeps up to 8 people.

The beamed open plan living area incorporates the lounge, dining and kitchen areas along with the wooden stairs that take you to the first floor bedrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances and includes dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and cooker.

.Full laundry facilities are provided in a separate building.

Along one wall there are 4 French windows leading you out onto your own private covered terrace with tables and chairs for outside dining.

Decoration throughout is a mixture of traditional furniture and modern pieces ensuring that comfort, convenience and style are never compromised.

One of the 3 toilets is on the ground floor.

From the spacious first floor landing you enter 4 bedrooms (2 doubles and 2 twins).

There are 2 shower rooms with washbasins and toilets.

The property is fully heated with electric radiators and a wood burner ( wood provided) for those early and later season breaks

Free Wifi is available in the property.

Within the price quoted we supply all you household linen, towels (except pool towels) and beds are made up for your arrival. We also supply all your principal household products such as cleaning materials, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls, rubbish sacks etc so there is no need to either bring or buy items of this kind

The layout of the property makes it a perfect choice for 2 families holidaying together,an extended family group or a group of friends.

On site the property also benefits from a 13m by 6m pool with plenty of sunbeds, parasols and floaty toys for the children. The pool is set within a enclosed courtyard making it the perfect suntrap but also secure for young ones.

The gite is set in over an acre of landscaped gardens with 2 BBQ areas (one covered) each with seating allowing you to enjoy outside dining.

For big and small children alike there is the games room with ping pong table, table football and a full size pool table. We also provide bats and balls for games in the grounds and board games etc. The parkland to the rear of the property is approximately 1 acre and provides the perfect space for outside games and there are swings.

About Jacky Jones

Hi there. Originally from London England my husband Neville and I moved permanently to this beautiful area of France in 2003 when we set about renovating this old cognac distillery to create 4 wonderful holiday houses. Opened in April 2005 we have worked hard to ensure that all our guests have the perfect stay and we are glad to be able to welcome many returning guests as 'old friends'. Previously we enjoyed travelling and have been lucky enough to experience too many countries, hotels and guest houses to mention but we have drawn on the best of those experiences when planning and running L'Ancienne Distillerie. Now we stay closer to home and enjoy the famous regional produce - Cognac, wine and the local liqueur Pineau - and all incredible music events and festivals.

Life motto - Life is too short to be unhappy!

Jacky Jones purchased this house in 2003

Why Jacky Jones chose Segonzac

We chose this property as we felt it perfectly match what we were looking to do; not too big that it was impersonal not too small that we would not be able to give our guests the space they needed. We felt that it was important for guests to decide what sort of holiday they wanted; peace, quiet and tranquility or if they preferred to be able to join together with other guests to share events, games, BBQs and experiences. So we have created a mix of private areas and public areas around the site so people can escape or join in as they please.

The property is also perfectly located for visits to Cognac town and visits to the local cognac producers, the coast and easily accessible from the Uk and Europe.

What makes this house unique

When I think about France I dream of blue shutters and grape vines Here the vines come right up to our boundaries and cover the gentle rolling hills and lead down into the picturesque river valley. After the renovations the house has blue shutters. We have the dream and we are happy to share it with you.
