Paris to Cognac and back via the Loire

Jump to last reply

We have a business meeting in Cognac in early June and will drive there from Paris. We have about 10 days including travel time, most of which will be outside Paris since we've been to Paris many times and will stay there just long enough to get over the flight from New York. The initial leg will be the drive from Paris, which will be 6 hours or so, including a stop en route. We plan to be around Cognac for 2-3 nights, then head back thru the Loire valley, which we've never visited. We'd like to stay there for 2-3 nights as well.

What we need are recommendations for restaurants and hotels in and around Cognac as well as suggestions for same in the Loire Valley. For the latter, we'll pick one base and perhaps visit a couple of chateaux, before driving back to Paris.

Our restaurant preferences tend toward Michelin Bib Gourmands, though we'd gladly splurge on a starred restaurant in the Loire. I'm aware of one two-star in Onzain and suspect that there are several one stars as well.

All suggestions greatly appreciated.
