After one week of experiencing Gretes' and Tronds' hospitality and love for their guests pluss their knowledge of the Cognac-area and what to do there, I am filled with gratitude and happiness from top to toe. Their Mansion has a wonderful atmosphere so if you need just to relax by the pool or inside the house you are welcome to do so. If you want to experiencing the beautiful nature around Cognac by foot or you want to learn more about the history of Cognac these two people are great storytellers and they help doing arrangements at the same time. All you have to do is ask them. Their kitchen is big and has all you need to make a good meal and with the Marked close by you do not have to go outside to eat every day, unless you want to. In that case Grete and Trond will help you pick a nice restaurant. Every room has its' own bathroom wich is very convinient wether you are a big group travelling together or you travel alone. A stay at Gretes' and Tronds' Mansion will give you a relaxed, a pleasant and a very interesting experience that will stay with you long after you are gone. I can recommend anybody to stay at Gretes' and Tronds' Mansion when going to Cognac. And do I need to say I want to come back? Sidsel Strømnes

We couldn't be happier about our stay at La Maison de Bastian! Grete and Trond are wonderful hosts, with a lot of knowledge about the Cognac area and Cognac producers (especially Bache-Gabrielsen). They were extremely helpful to recommend and help plan activities, restaurants, day trips, Cognac production tours, etc. The mansion is wonderful, and is in a fantastic location, within walking distance of the best of Cognac (the market, shopping streets, restaurants, parks, etc). A perfect day for us started with a short walk to the market for fresh bread, cheese, vegetables, meats, and fish, then breakfast by the pool, maybe a walk by the river or in a nearby park, lunch in Cognac or a nearby town, basking in the afternoon sun by the pool, grilling for dinner, then a relaxing evening with wine from the cellar and conversation with friends or maybe just a cozy spot for two in the garden. We would love to come back!

Great hosts, fantastic old house...they told me to treat it as though it was my own home, and they mean't it! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone I know!

My hosts could not have been more welcoming. My stay was trouble free and Grete and Trond are extremely generous and accommodating hosts. The house is very central but secluded and although there is a 'work in progress' to some aspects of the building it certainly didn't spoil my time and the other guests were charming and interesting. In addition , as a keyboard player, Trond's generosity in allowing me to play was greatly appreciated, a real bonus.

A magnificent mansion in the heart of Cognac - a delightful surprise on our arrival. From the other reviews it is a shame we didn't get chance to meet our hosts (they were out of town) as they seem like the perfect hosts. Once the project is complete it will be a magnificent property. We'll worth our visit

We enjoyed 2 nights with Trond as our host. He made us feel very welcome and encouraged us to treat the house as our home, which we did! The house is conveniently situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Cognac and close to the river. It is beautifully secluded within a large garden and behind high walls, we had a lovely view from our top floor room over the town. We ate breakfast outside and made good use of the pool.As we were in Cognac for a wedding we were around the house quite a bit, which Trond was fine with.

Grete & Trond User ProfileGrete & Trond is a superhost.

We are a family from Norway, who are in love with France but also enjoys traveling around in all parts of the world.
We like to thrust in people and feel comforted when we are staying in other folks home just as much as we enjoy having people coming to our places.
We speak several languages, even some of them is a bit poor.
Some things we enjoy specific: Winter-sports like cross-country and alpine, mountain hiking, making of food and dining with friends, wine and cognac, traveling(of cours), art and photography and...
...a challange to overcome!
