Maison Dix-Neuf lies in the heart of the small town of Jarnac which is situated on the right north bank of the Charente.

This stunning villa is directly opposite the birth home of one of France's former presidents; Francois Mitterrand and is well-located for visits to the Cognac region and surrounding towns and villages.

Courvoisier is actually in the town centre - a short stroll along the rue. However, instead we opted for visits to the local sellers. The passion for brandy was tipping off their Gallic tongues and was a delight to behold and experience.

It was May. The weather was changeable. Beaches were about an hour‘s drive. However we liked the villa so much, with swimming pool, a tad cold I thought, and its lovely kitchen, that we pretty much were embedded for the whole week.

The kitchen was a delight and the cuisine dished up was light years ahead of the competition.

Jarnac’s gastronomy may be found in its high-quality brandy, but its restaurants sadly left us saying a big - Non. Surprisingly for France, those we tried were a bit of a 'tranchee gastronomique'. (Perhaps in high season the real chef’s clock on.)

In short… Dix and Neuf add up to ‘excellent’, and with new owners Phil and Susanna dishing out the welcome packs there is little doubt in my mind that Maison Dix-Neuf will book up fast in future.

Travel

We drove from London to Folkestone (1hr15mns) then Euro tunnel (35mns). The journey down to Jarnac took 8 1/2 hours - due to getting lost mostly, and we did take a short break. (Normally 7hrs non-stop.) My advice would be to do a stopover which we did on the return. We stayed one night at Chartres, which was a beautiful cosmopolitan delight. The food here was excellent.
