Villemorin

This little village, known for its Cognac production, is located within vineyards and sunflower fields.  The landscape by day or night will inspire you to paint, write, relax and enjoy a little photography.  It is also the perfect place from which to explore the beautiful countryside on foot or by bicycle.
