If one is spending a few days in the Cognac region (very worthwhile) then the gites at the Logis de l'Astree are ideal. You can relax in your own little 'cottage' (with private garden space!) and rustle up fabulous meals using local produce. Or, you can just cheat and heat up a few wonderful dishes in the microwave from the fabulous traiteur (caterer) in Saintes -- Philippe Gault. The logis' own delicious sauvignon blanc and merlot -- excellent value! -- can be purchased from the proprietor. A very good boulangerie and local goats' milk cheese also available in the local village (a 5 minute walk from the logis).
The Logis de l'Astree is the perfect place for what the french call 'le cocooning' -- getting so cozy you just want to stay put!More
