Grete and Trond made us feel very welcome and at ease in their home. The listing was accurate and the house was amazing - the rooms went on and on! Cognac itself is a beautiful town with loads to do - we'd like to go back as there is so much more that we haven't discovered yet.

Our stay at the private Mansion of Grete & Trond was excellent. We felt verry welcome and they gave a lot of confidence, leaving us their house with all their stuff just in it (including a ultra-classy-telescope to watch te moon).The house is really spacious, downstairs and upstairs. There are 13 rooms with each a private bathroom, so a lot of privacy for everybody. The interior decoration is rather old fashion, but suits the setting i guess. The kitchen could use some upgrade, although there were more then enough plates, glases, towels, pots, pans... Anyway most of the time we were outside in the lovely garden, having a great time around the beautifull pool. The buffet table near the kitchen was verry handy, the BBQ was used frequently. Amazing to stay in a big house with a big garden, so close to the center of Cognac (a charming little town, 10 min walk). And just 20 minutes walk along the river you have a big playyard, where you can play minigolf, voleybal, with jumping castles for the children, ...and you can rent a canoe. I would recommend this house for sure. Thanks Grete & Trond for the lovely stay

Trond was a wonderful host and welcomed all of us in his great house. Definitely a great option if you're a large group. Also, rooms can be rented individually. Highly recommand !

We loved this property! No car needed as everything you could need is situated on the doorstep town centre and picturesque forest are only a 5 min walk, and the train station is 25 mins walk away. House itself is massive- we were a party of 13, but it could very comfortably accommodate 20+. Pool is plenty large enough for the number of guests. Pool table and BBQ were well used, as was the outdoor dining. Town is relatively quiet but provides all necessities as well as the main attraction of the Cognac distilleries. Hosts were very welcoming, even though as a group of young 20 somethings we were perhaps not who they are used to accommodating! They gave great advice and really made us feel at home, even opening a couple bottles of Champagne for a guest's birthday. Would thoroughly recommend for parties of all ages. However, if looking for a vibrant nightlife of clubs and bars, Cognac is probably a little too small. Overall a big thumbs up! Thank you Grete and Trond!

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!
