La Grange has been beautifully renovated from an old charentaise barn to produce a stunning gite which successfully blends contemporary and traditional features; it benefits from having lots of honey-coloured stone walls and traditional oak beams (in 100M2). La Grange has two bedrooms upstairs and a shower/toilet room. Downstairs, there is a large lounge/kitchen/diner (with a sofa bed) with a washing room and an additional toilet leading to a large, additional bedroom (with double bed and en-suite shower). Upstairs there is a further double (king size bed) and one large, twin bedroom, the gite is ideal for families. The gite benefits from having mosquito blinds to all bedroom windows. The gite enjoys shared use of a large, floodlit swimming pool, children's play area, table-tennis table, boule and badminton courts and gym. La Grange enjoys fast and free WiFi throughout the gite and even on the patio.

La Grange 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 are minutes away from a superb choice of local restaurants and some thirty minutes' drive from the superb beaches of the Cote Sauvage. 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.

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.

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/Vendee 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.

"Excellent accommodation and facilities, great for children!!!!!!!"

The hosts of La Grange made us feel very welcome. They were extremely accommodating and did everything possible to ensure we truly enjoyed our stay. The gite is very spacious and offers everything you need, especially with two young children, who loved the playground area and the pool. The weather was great, even in October! The accommodation is in a great spot, near a couple of pretty towns (Cognac and Saintes) and also not far to drive to the coast and beaches in Charente Maritime. As it is in a lovely countryside location we also enjoyed going on nice sunny walks. I would highly recommend this holiday accommodation to all ages and especially to families with young children. We had a wonderful holiday and are thinking of re-booking the same gite again next time. Thank you!!!!!!!!

"Luxurious relaxation"

We couldn't have picked a better place for our first foray into self catering in France. La Grange was perfect for us and our two children (10 & 15). We were warmly welcomed by the owners, Phil… More

"SPLENDID ACCOMMODATION IN IDYLLIC SURROUNDINGS"

We rented the 2 adjacent gites (La Grange and Le Figuier) for our 2 families. Both gites were extremely clean and well specified. Lovely pool which was a lifesaver on the hot days. The whole site is well laid out with a boules area, swings, a place for badminton. The bikes we hired were all excellent and the area is wonderful for cycling as so picturesque and FLAT. We only had a week but visited the coast - lovely beaches at Palmyre with waves the boys loved - and Cognac, which is a charning town only 15 minutes away. Phil and Glyn were always helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive. Would recommend for families with young kids, teenagers and couples of all ages.
