The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Charente is blessed with good access and its proximity to fantastic sites while being "in the middle of nowhere!" You can think that you are completely out of the modern world- far from modern concerns one moment, then jump in the car for a pleasant, unstressful car ride and in just a few minutes arrive in Cosmopolitan Angouleme, Cognac or Bordeaux....

On top of that the countryside is full of beautiful views, surprising locals with unsurpassed talents and friendly people who really enjoy visitors. There truly is something for everyone- hiking, biking and other sporty/nature activities, quadbiking/jetskiing for more thrill seakers, tree climbing and kayaking for those that like to see nature from a different angle, cafés, restaurants and farmers markets for those that like their food... Pampering in spas and toning up in gyms for those that don't necessarily care for too much sand between their toes... World class shopping and site seeing at world renowned sites to write home about!


Brossac Village is a sleepy little village but one that offers truly kind people and all the local services you need: a butcher with fresh local meats and baked dishes, a Spar food market, a bakery, a hair dresser, a pharmacy, a small postal annex, a tourist office and even a DIY shop. There is a pizza restaurant for eat in or take out and a Catholic church dating from the 15th century that still holds mass.

The Etang Vallier Resort site is located not even 2km from the village centre and offers a swimming lake with a sandy beach and high quality (tested regularly) water that is open to the public. The mini golf and games area has a trampoline and bouncy castle plus a giant chess set (5€50 adults/4€ children residents) . There are bikes, stand up paddles, kayaks and sun loungers for hire. Starting with summer 2014 there is a tele waterskiing on the lake to try out as well. There is a traditional Bistrot style restaurant on site with a terrace overlooking the lake, as well a the Clubhouse Café & spa which runs theme nights in the summer and offers café & diner style favorites made on the spot with local ingredients: bread baked daily in Brossac, local beef, local ice cream!

St Vallier is only 5 minutes away from Brossac and here is another gem! Local ice cream is made here, there are distillery visits, a vinyard that features visits in a little tractor train as well as shows you its milk production facility and the baby cows (great for keeping kids occupied while mom and dad taste the pineau and local wine)... Go a bit further (50m) and visit the strawberry producer... St Vallier also has a riding centre for all ability levels...

Chalais is 12km from Brossac and there you will find a large monday market, beautiful chateau now open for a visit and a wonderful restaurant plus full services (banking, shopping, etc.)
