Cognac is a town in western France which obviously has close links to the brandy industry. For tourists, this is an indicator of the rolling countryside and endless vineyards that surround the town. The churches and castles of the Charente department are all close-by, as well as charming destinations such as Angoulême and Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, making car hire from Cognac a great option to explore the wider region.
Cognac's Old Town is the most attractive part of the town, based around monuments like Saint-Jacques Tower and the Church of St Léger. Cognac Public Gardens are particularly appealing for a quiet afternoon.
Cognac is a particularly pleasant town due to its location on the banks of the Charente. Château des Valois (Cognac Castle) overlooks the river, along with the Saint-Jacques Towers; be sure to look out for François I's salamander symbol on many of the half-timbered buildings of the Old Town. The Museum of Art and History and Cognac Public Gardens are also a worthwhile detour.
If you're hiring a car from Cognac, Angoulême is a short drive east on the N141, whereas the Abbaye Fontdouce makes for a pleasant drive north-west on the D731. Be sure to take in the wonderful vineyards and countryside of Charente as you travel around the region.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
