Le Marronnier has been sympathetically restored from an old charentaise stable block and furnished to a high standard, blending contemporary with traditional features (with beautiful, old oak beams and honey-coloured stone). The spacious, detached gite (90M2) is well-equipped and it benefits from having an extensive (50M2) private patio which is furnished with seating and a BARBQ for dining alfresco. With one master bedroom (king size bed) a twin bedroom and a king-size sofabed, the gite is ideal for families. The gite benefits from having mosquito blinds to all bedroom windows.The gite has a large, well-equipped kitchen and an extensive, light living area. The gite enjoys shared use of a large, floodlit swimming pool, safe children's play area, table tennis table, badminton court, boule court and gym. Le Marronnier enjoys fast and free WiFi throughout the gite and on its patio!

We are minutes away from a superb choice of local restaurants and some thirty minutes' drive from the superb beaches of the Cote Sauvage. There is a mouth-watering choice of places to visit locally (the beautiful beaches of the Cote Sauvage, Royan, La Rochelle, Cognac, Pons, Saintes, Angouleme, Bordeaux, La Palmyre Zoo and sleepy villages) and a host of activities, including walking, cycling, fishing, canoeing, horse-riding, golf, tennis, swimming and surfing. You can enjoy a relaxing walk or cycle ride to the nearby villages for your breakfast croissants or bread.

Share the tranquility and the wonderful climate of the Charente Maritime - relax in an idyllic setting in Poitou-Charentes. Our luxury family-friendly gites and chambres d'hôte are nestled in the heart of the 'Petite Champagne', the grape growing region that produces the world renowned Cognac brandy and the local aperitif, pineau.

Le Marronnier is located in six acres of well-maintained, landscaped grounds on the outskirts of Brives sur Charente, just ten minutes' drive from Cognac. Quiet and peaceful, the gite has easy access to all amenities, including local markets for bargain hunting, and many excellent restaurants for eating out. We hope you will choose Gites de Brives to savour what France has to offer the discerning visitor with something for the whole family!

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Charente Maritime enjoys fantastic weather! The Charente Maritime is the second sunniest region of France, after the Mediterranean; we enjoy a quite superb micro-climate. We also have short but cold winters - so we have the best of both worlds!

Dining alfresco and enjoying the long warm evenings while you are on holiday is the stuff memories are made of...

Brives-sur-Charente

The surrounding area has a great deal to offer from the buzzing town of Cognac (lots of cafes and boutique shops, not forgetting the world-famous distillery tours - Hennessy, Otard, Remy-Martin, Martell and Camus!), to the beautiful ancient towns of Pons and Saintes. Weekly local markets are held in Cognac, Pons and Saintes. There are a multitude of local restaurants and bars all within an easy drive. Some are (luckily!) only about 15 minutes by bike.

The beautiful beaches of St George-de-Didonne and St Palais-sur-Mer are a 30 minute drive way and La Palmyre Zoo (one of the biggest zoos in Europe with over 1600 animals to delight all the family) is about an hour's drive.

"Relaxing family holiday"

Lovely clean, spacious and well equipped gite. Pool was clean and well maintained and deep enough to jump and dive in. We stayed with our 14 year old son who enjoyed the table tennis and boules. There were lots of pretty towns and places of interest within easy driving distance. Would reccomend Pons, Talmont and Blaye. The Roman amphitheatre at Saintes is also worth a visit.

"Fantastic Holiday"

Just returned from a brilliant holiday to Gites De Brives. The owners Philip an Glynn where the perfect hosts, giving us top tips about the area and good places to visit but at the same time they weren't intrusive and let us just enjoy our holiday. The Gite was perfect - it had all the facilities you wished for and the old beams and stone walls gave it a great, typical French feel. It was much more spacious than anticipated from the photos. The BBQ area and patio finished it off perfectly. Sipping coffee in the morning watching the sun come up, but more importantly in the evening, sipping red wine and cooking prawns on the BBQ watching the sun set over the sunflower fields and vineyards - what more could you ask for. Wish we had booked two weeks and not just one as there was lots to do in the area. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

"An excellent gite in the heart of the beautiful Charente"

Phil and Glyn are very welcoming hosts. They have considerable knowledge of the area and helped us understand more about life in the Charente. La Marronnier provides the essentials and much more. With charming decor and a 'welcome pack' to die for, this comfortable and functional gite immediately felt like a home. La Maronnier is stylish, clean, and it has every conceivable gadget and home comfort. As the perfect hosts, Phil and Glyn made sure our needs were met, while proactively assisting in our quest, in an unobtrusive and thoughtful way. The prefect combination. We highly recommend Gites de Brives.
