Hotel – restaurant


The Essille Logishotel, located 20 minutes from Angoulême and Cognac, welcomes you all year round for your business trips, as a couple, with family or friends for short, medium or long stays
In the heart of the Grande Champagne region, surrounded by the largest white wine vineyard in the world, which after distillation produces the most prestigious Cognac, L'Essille opens its doors to you for privileged moments, for a night, a weekend or a longer stay, or for a professional evening. L'Essille has two private car parks (one on the courtyard side and one on the park side) for safe parking, as well as an electric recharging point. Our hotel offers eighteen spacious and very comfortable rooms, classified 3*, managed by a friendly and competent staff, happy to welcome you as a distinguished guest, in a warm decor inspired by the particularities of our region. The entrance porch opens onto the large courtyard of the former manor house that was this beautiful property, built in the heart of a remarkable village, made of stones from the Charente soil in the purest local architectural tradition. A superb park with trees at the back, a vast summer terrace and a large Koi pond make up this property, which is located a stone's throw from the famous Bassac Abbey, on the banks of our languid river, where nature is preserved. Comfort and elegance are the pillars of our art of living, which is combined with the pleasure of receiving guests and the ancestral hospitable customs of the Cognac region. We are in the land of François I, Rabelais and the Renaissance, promoters in their time of a fashion that would influence French society until today. Our establishment is the heir of this past linked to the love of beautiful things, products of its country, and moments of exception and conviviality. Our large orangery-style reception room will enable you to organise your seminars and your professional or private receptions. Our restaurant, whose main room has recently benefited from new fittings, is in keeping with this vocation. Our Bar Salon has a wall of more than 250 bottles and decanters of Cognac. Laurent, the wine waiter, will guide you through the wine list, which offers famous vintages and beverages from the surrounding area. Our team of waiters will serve you with smiles, competence and kindness. If you feel like stretching your legs after your meal, Bassac is a real starting point for the discovery tours that we organise for you.
