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. We hope you will choose Gites de Brives to savour what France has to offer the discerning visitor.

Location description from owner

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.Other 'bits':Post Office: Brives sur Charente.Local shops: Salignac, Perignac, Dompierre and Rouffiac.Supermarkets: Cognac, Pons or Saintes.Cash point: Chaniers and at all local supermarkets.Banks: Cognac and Pons.Golf: Cognac, Saintes & Angouleme.Tennis: Rouffiac or Ars.Swimming (indoor and outdoor): Cognac and Saintes, Charente, coast.Fishing: Charente.Canoeing: Charente, Seugne (Pons), coast.Aquatic Centre (pools, gym, sauna, massage): Jonzac.Doctor, Dentist & Hospital: Cognac.

“Friendly”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2014

High quality property run by onsite English owners. Always available for advice but not intrusive. Well maintained pool and garden. Good wifi.

“Perfection In Paradise”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Had a wonderful two weeks in this lovely Gite. Phil & Glyn were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. They were a big help with a translation as I needed to explain a problem with my car to a local garage. Gave directions for supermarkets & places of interest and fixed up our youngest with a bike to ride arround on their land. Gite and Pool were spotless and situated in a really great area of France. They even managed to arrange two perfect weeks of weather for us.

“Beautiful location, excellent facilities, friendly owners”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2013

We stayed at this property for 2 weeks in July/Aug 2013, and it was everything we were looking for in a holiday. The location is excellent - only 10 mins drive from Cognac and less than an hour from the sandy beaches at Meschers and Royan. Our property was a 2 bedroomed gite which was fully-equipped with all mod cons incl satellite tv, and DVD player, wifi and iPod docking station. It was clean and well-maintained. The property is part of a redeveloped barn set in large grounds with a beautiful pool area, boules court, table tennis table, gym, bikes for hire and plenty of space for the kids to run around. There are 3 gites, a studio and B&B accommodation on site so there were plenty of other kids for ours to make friends with. The property is set in the Charente countryside, surrounded by sunflowers and vines. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. Although they live onsite and were there when you needed them they were not intrusive at all.

“Lovely, spacious and clean accommodation, friendly, helpful hosts and beautiful countryside.”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2012

The holiday was all we hoped it would be and more. The owners were friendly and helpful and the accommodation was spacious, clean and modern. The surrounding countryside was peaceful and charming - an oasis away from the hub-bub of normal life. Certainly one of the best holidays our family has had.
