    A great start to any holiday.(2003)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Although Ebeon is wonderfully isolated and I would surprised to see another page besides mine on VT it isn`t too far from some really great places like Cognac.
    Don`t forget Ebeon is in the heart of the countryside. Sunflowers, melons, maize and of course grapes are grown all over this region.

    Fondest memory: Aged Otard Cognac, tons and tons of it, no wonder i look happy. This is how it is stored for up to 25 years before it is bottled. The spirit is over proof when it is casked and maturation in a barrel allows some of the spirit to evaporate (the angels share) and the flavour to develop.
    At Remy Martin I learned that they lose 2% of their spirit every year to the 'Angels Share' that equates to 6000 barrels!
    Go to Cognac, do a distillery tour, you'll soon know all about it.

    Favorite thing: This is a very old town, in the 10th century it was a modest little village until it started trading it's eaux-de-viw with the rest of the world.
    Take your time to look around, look up at the half-timbered houses, notice how small some of the doorways are, there is history all around you.

    Fondest memory: Riding over the Pont Neuf on my gleaming '78 Triumph into the beautiful medieval town and immediately finding somewhere to park.

    A Jewel in France

    by Elizabeth.H Written Sep 25, 2009

    Favorite thing: The thing I remember most about Cognac is the site: Camping de Cognac. Where can you go and have the Charente flowing past your front door? The river abounds with fish and many wild life species visit the river.

    We fed the ducks, fish and swans every day.

    Fondest memory: The many woderful people I met and their unconditional kindness to me, ready to help without recourse. Next year I shall return. It feels like a little piece of Eden.
