How do I get there?
Foreign visitors to Cognac who arrive by air generally begin the French leg of their journey to Cognac in either Paris or Bordeaux. Cognac is approximately 250 miles (400km) south of Paris. It is about a four and half hour car or train ride from Paris to Cognac.
Bordeaux is about 60 miles (100 m) to the south from Cognac and can be reached in about an hour and a half by train or car.
There are flights from Paris to Bordeaux, but after transfers/connecting flights and the ground journey from Bordeaux to Cognac, the journey from Paris to Cognac will take longer than simply driving or taking the train from Paris.
