The Distillery

The cottage "The Distillery" of the Estate "Le Maine Des Rois" is a 50 m2 cottage for 2-4 persons, ground floor courtyard and garden, located in Juillac-le-Coq, in the heart of Cognac Grande Champagne country.
The lodge is open all year long for vacation rentals in formulas weekend, week or other period subject to availability.
The cottage was located in a former Cognac distillery and was designed by combining modernity and "Charente soul". It was opened for rent in August 2011.
The furniture was got in antique shop and on flea markets in the region.

The philosophy of the premises

We make every effort to accommodate our guests in the best possible conditions, which is why they find in the cottage small touches that make life easier as the supply of products for the dishwasher or washing machine, products for washing or cleaning as well as towels.


The cottage is ideally situated for exploring Charente and particularly the Cognac region:
  • Visit of the main Cognac brands (Hennessy, Martell, Courvoisier, Remy Martin, ...)
  • Visit of the museum dedicated to Cognacs
  • Independant Cognac producers tasting
  • Ballads by special boat "gabarre" on the river Charente
  • Discovering of the Roman Saintonge Art
