We all thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Otard chateau and would certainly recommend it. The tour included history, cognac production and a tasting - very good value for money. Our guide, Elizabeth, spoke excellent English. She was charming, informative and entertaining.

.chateauroyaldecognac their website. We didn’t book but in March outside school holidays we felt it was safe to take a chance. English tours are at 2.00 pm, booking is probably the best option in higher season. Have fun!

Hello Annie, there are a lot of steps in the Château, a walker is not recommended, but you can use a cane. Don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to have more information about the tours.
