Cognac:
Cognac is situated in the Charente department of western France between Angouleme and Saintes. The name of Cognac is known the world over because of the brandy produced in the region, and the chance to visit the Cognac distilleries certainly attracts many visitors, but the town itself is also very interesting to explore with an attractive riverside and historical centre to discover.
Exploring Cognac
Cognac has two distinct areas:
• the bustling ‘modern’ town where you will find most of the shops, large boulevards and street-side cafes;
• the old town which is much quieter and includes the castle and other historic monuments, most of the famous distilleries, and the Charente river.
The buildings in Cognac are mostly constructed from the local white stone that is found throughout the Poitou-Charentes region and makes the local architecture so distinctive and attractive.

Hotel Francois Premier:
The Hotel is less than half a mile from the Hennessy Cognac House
Take advantage of the privileged location of the top-of-the-range Hotel François Premier Cognac Centre:
Visit the cognac houses, take a walk in Gabare on the Charente, let yourself be tempted by a round of golf, or simply enjoy a moment of strolling in the streets of the old town.
A town in the southwest, Cognac enjoys long sunny days. Discover the Atlantic Coast: visit the Zoo de la Palmyre, the towns of St Palais Sur Mer, Royan but also the most beautiful villages in France: Mornac sur Seudre, Aubeterre sur Dronne, Talmont sur Gironde. Finally, allow yourself a moment of relaxation and tanning on the beautiful sandy beaches of the wild coast.

The Hotel has a small corner of greenery and breathtaking view over the roofs of Cognac. The Garden is the ideal space to share convivial moments around a Germain cocktail or simply relax.

Honeymoon to India – the service far exceeded our expectations

“From the very moment we contacted the InspireMeTravel team to arrange our honeymoon to India (New Delhi) and Sri Lanka (The Cape Weligama) the service far exceeded our expectations. The professionalism of providing us with a proposal detailing the entire trip from the moment we left the UK, flights, hotels, excursions, internal transfers and the flight back home were amazing. As part of the service we were provided with a local mobile phone and a representative should we need to contact anyone, this was a true first class service. We had a complication due to weather conditions that our sea plane was not able to fly and again, without any interruption to our holiday the InspireMeTravel team took care of everything keeping in contact with us the entire time. We have used them for all our holidays since our honeymoon, they will not disappoint. Well done to Karen and Jill in particular.”

North Cyprus Wine Tasting – one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted!

"In my opinion,  one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted! Such a stunning hotel with gorgeous views of the vineyards that this hotel is set in and only 15 mins drive to North Cyprus’ harbour, which offers lovely restaurants surrounding it so you can experience more of the tasty North Cypriot cuisine. 

The rooms in the hotel are First Class with different themes for each and the only hotel In North Cyprus with its own wine. Definitely recommend."

Verona Opera – Such an amazing experience

"If you want to see an opera with the magical atmosphere and feel as if you are actually with the characters then go to the Opera Arena in Verona. Such an amazing experience.  Verona also has the Romeo and Juliet museum where you can actually stand in Juliets Courtyard and in her balcony.  Definitely a must."

I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the famous Mona Lisa’s family home.  The landscape features in the background of the famous Mona Lisa painting – how amazing is that!   First impressions from the group was “Wow”, the ambience, the scenery, the home was breathtakingly beautiful.  We were free to walk around the beautiful gardens and then joined a wine tour, which was very informative.  The group were then shown to our outside dining table on the terrace, where we could marvel at the view whilst sampling the wines which accompanied our lunch. There is a shop where you can buy wines and other gifts, what an opportunity to take a bottle of Mona Lisa wine home with you, so you can share this truly special experience with your friends!  I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel.  It was so very well organised."

What a truly wonderful experience

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the Paris Jazz clubs in February this year.  What a truly wonderful experience.  Our first night was at Ducs des Lombard, for the truly discerning jazz enthusiast, it did not disappoint.  The following evening was at the famous Caveau de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter; grab a seat and listen to the band; watch some amazing dancers and join in.  It had a great atmosphere and was super friendly.  Inspire Me Travel also organised wonderful restaurants (to suit our budget) close to the jazz venues.   I would highly recommend booking with Inspire Me Travel they tick all the boxes!"
