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 tranquillity 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.
