  • A first visit with a very unpleasant home confirmed on a second visit. We asked price, advice. The employee answers we "have to read!" Everything was to match. We bought the minimum. We are very disappointed in this store. We would stay there again! Catherine in Bordeaux

  • A great ride poetic and relaxing in this beautiful park, on the arm of the fairies to beautiful blue eyes, being careful to not drown: take your time, let tell the mystery of the place, nice pictures to do. As for the temptation of pineau and cognac, it is everyone who sees! Faso33

  • The garden is beautiful, blue waters, trees and quiet, too bad that the owner be so pretentious. Even if we came to the region of Cognac, he totally ignored us, he refused to let us taste his production, it's a lack of etiquette as the garden tour ends with a tasting... We will not make him a good pub.

  • Attractive gardens and dégustation of cognac and Pineau from this distillery.
  • Fascinating park and wells, nice tasting of pineau and cognac . No other wines. Beautiful castle but no admittance inside.
  • It's a secret!
  • Without being a floral park is a nice quiet place to visit with a child's soul as fountains take you to the land of the fairies. Entry € 5/person but deductible from the purchase of an exceptional Pineau. No doubt it helps to better see the fairies! End of September, not a single mosquito Park was seen!

  • Blue fountains are a nice surprise! Really unexpected and beautiful weather. Walk 30 minutes in this beautiful park shaded. € 5 entry. (Free entrance if you come to buy the Pineau and Cognac.) I recommend!
