Chateau de L´Yeuse, located within 5 minutes drive from the city centre of Cognac, overlooks the Charente River and the surroundings area. Guests benefit from breathtaking views and centuries old gardens on the banks of the river that offers relaxing walks along wooded pathways. Chateau de L´Yeuse has an interior decoration that is eye catching, with murals, delicately modern fabrics, and wall lights bringing a particular character to the romanticism of the interior design. The combination of times past and present is even more interesting, demonstrating that harmony does not preclude audacity. Its bedrooms are individually decorated in lively colours and furnished for style and comfort, and include all the modern amenities thus creating an enchanting, relaxing and romantic atmosphere. The beautifully arranged terrace with its view over the Charente offers memorable moment for summer lunches or dinners and in the quiet surroundings and magical setting of our large, beautifully decorated dining room, under the Murano glass chandeliers you can savour and enjoy the mix of styles and influences of the exquisite dishes created by our excellent chef Pascal Nebou. Finally relax in the comfortable surroundings of our Smoking Lounge Bar, with its old fireplace, and enjoy the pleasures of sampling the excellent Cognacs of the region.

Hotel l’Yeuse is synonymous with “self-pampering”. Located just outside of Cognac, the hotel is situated in the Charente countryside with views from the terrace over the River Charente and the hotel’s own Respectful Garden. La Table d’Yeuse is just as decadent as its cognacteque where you can sample the selection of brandy. In the restaurant, chef Julien Lachenaud uses local ingredients to create lavish and original meals that will keep you coming back every night you’re in town. In the surrounding region, you’ll find a plethora of outdoor activities such as horse riding, kayaking, and hiking. If you’re a golfer, the Cognac Golf Club is only 7 km away, and even non-golfers will appreciate the country club cuisine. 


The Respectful Garden. At L’Yeuse, the staff are dedicated to the promotion of biodiversity, and the Respectful Garden, which you can see from the hotel’s terrace, reflects that idea. Members of the community volunteer to build compost bins and “insect hotels” that promote the reuse of organic materials as fertilizer. The foods in the Yeuse restaurant follow this model by using products from local producers as well as herbs and crops from their own garden. 


  • The Drawing Room. Take a minute to enjoy the wide selection of brandy with a cigar in this cognacteque.
  • The hotel’s terrace. Relax with a drink here, where you’ll have panoramic views of the Charente countryside. 
  • The spa and wellness centre. Take advantage of the sauna, hot tub, hammam and massage services.

Cognac lies on the banks of the river Charente, from which it draws its prosperity and, no doubt, its origin. The river Charente was known for its navigability from the Neolithic period and was one of the main supply routes for food.
As in the rest of the country, following the First World War, the population of Cognac declined, but despite the successive economic crises during the inter-war years, cognac was still drunk throughout the world, the train had replaced the sailing barges and the wheels of commerce were turning. In the 1930s the air Force base was opened and Cognac turned towards Europe.
The town of Cognac has always been able to change to keep up with the rhythm of national, and indeed, international events, even if it has only played a small role.
The statue of François 1er, by the sculptor Etex, stands in the centre of the square which owes its shape to the bastion which was built there in 1651, during the siege of the town by the members of the Fronde. The bastion defended one of the town gates which was situated at the entrance to the present rue d’Angoulême.
The world enjoys 100 million bottles a year of the nectar known as cognac, which Victor Hugo called "the drink of the gods." It's worth a detour to visit one of the château warehouses of the great bottlers. Martell, Hennessy, and Otard welcome visits from the public and even give you a free drink at the end of the tour.

This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true, because they never allocate ALL the rooms to third parties.
