Welcome at the Domaine Tesseron
Located at the heart of the Pays du Cognac, on a family ran vineyard, we offer you a stay in our guest bedrooms and in our 19th century guest house. Entirely refurbished and redecorated in 2017, the guest house offers spacious and bright guest rooms for a relaxing and resourcing stay, in the heart of the country side.
Ginette Tesseron, winemaker, started this activity in the seventies in her large property. She will keep it running until 2005 and it will be proudly taken over by her three sons in 2017 to keep the heritage going.
