Cognac

Although Cognac is around 125km to the southeast of Interlude campsite, we think it’s well worth a visit for adult travellers. Famous for the drink of the same name you’ll find a variety of distilleries where you’ll be able to take a tour, find out a little more about the history and distilling process of Cognac and of course try a few samples. The Musee des Arts du Cognac, is also well worth a visit as you can find out even more about the drinks history and economic importance.

Rochefort is a wonderful port which is often overlooked by travellers but is well worth visiting. Located just 56km to the southeast of Interlude campsite, Rochefort is a great place for history lovers, especially those interested in the history of the sea and naval warfare.
The Musee National de la Marine is one of the main naval museums in France along with those located in Paris, Brest, Port Louis, Toulon and St Trpoez.

St Martin de Re is the capital of the island Ile de Re and can be found a mere 4km to the north of Interlude campsite.

St Martin de Re was substantially fortified during the 17th Century, firstly under the orders of Cardinal Richelieu and then later in the 17the Century by the famous engineer Vauban.
