There is so much to do in the region and Hotel Karina is the perfect place for a short or long break away. Just a few minutes from the riverside town of Jarnac, discover the beautiful Charente river by hiring a kayak or taking a leisurely guided boat trip. Cognac and Angouleme are an easy drive and Bordeaux or the beach can be reached in just over an hour.
Passionate about cars? The nearby City of Angouleme comes alive to the sound of vintage and classic cars throughout the Circuit des Remparts over one weekend every September.
Music? In July, Cognac offers the renowned Blues festival as well as the Fete de Cognac where you will find music, food and cocktails along the quai.
Planet Ski is just a 10 minute drive away. This water skiing school offers a great experience and whether you are a beginner or a pro it is a great way to have some fun. Many of our clients love taking their children to give this a go for the first time.
Golf du Cognac – undulating fairways amongst vinyards and forests on the banks of the river Charente. We are happy to book this for you in advance.
Walking and Cycling – we have glorious scenery here in the Charente, perfect for either a gentle stroll, a serious hike or exploring by bike. Here at the Hotel Karina, we are happy to provide you with routes and maps in order for you to discover all there is on offer. Why not let us prepare a picnic to take along with you ?
Cognac tasting tour – The Cognac distillieries are on our doorstep ; whether you would like to visit a large well known cognac house or a small independent producer, we can organise this for you. They all have something different to offer and of course there is the tasting at the end of your tour.
