    Its a great place and wonderful music in the park. The town also fills with small bands in bars. Brass Hoppers performed for free in the town. One year I noticed small posters advertising Ray Charles and his orchestra in concert. Couldn’t believe it. It really was and was a great night in balmy weather. I love the town and of course Cognac. I went 12 years running. Best place in France
