Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine 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.

Other 'bits':
Post Office: Brives sur Charente.
Local shops: Salignac, Perignac, Dompierre and Rouffiac.

“Relaxing family holiday”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

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”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2014

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.

“Ultimate peace in very comfortable suroundings!”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

Le Marronier is a very spacious 2 bedroomed gite. The owners were very friendly and helpful attending to all our needs.I would certainly recommend Gites de Brive to anyone. Lovely holiday!

“An excellent gite in the heart of the beautiful Charente”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2012

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.
