“Fourth visit to paradise!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just back from our fourth stay at La Grange. As always the Gite and all facilities were pristine and Phil & Glyn were warm and welcoming.

The Gite is fully equipped with everything you could need for your stay, including English TV channels. Bikes are available for hire and the relatively flat landscape is perfect for cycling around.

Gites de Brives is a little slice of paradise in a truly beautiful part of France. When we weren't enjoying the sun terrace and beautifully kept pool we went sightseeing in places such as Cognac, Jarnac, Pons and Talmont. We went kayaking on the Charente and had a tour of the Otard Cognac house.

The fact that we are planning our FIFTH visit to Gites de Brives surely says it all!

“Everything we wanted and more”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a great holiday at Gite de Brives - it has to go down as one of our best family holidays. Travelling with my parents and our 5 year old son I was worried that we would be on top of each other at the Gite but not at all. The layout of the Gite was perfect and everything we needed was catered for. Our hosts went above and beyond and were always around in the background if needed.
It was our first holiday staying inland and we loved it because of the accommodation and the fact it is such a lovely part of France. The Gites are in the middle of fields of vineyards and sunflowers but 20 mins and we were in the town of Cognac with its shops and restaurants and of course Cognac houses! We expected to spend days driving to the beach and local sites but found ourselves staying by the lovely pool (cleaned daily) and relaxing. Our evenings were spent playing boules and drinking pineau and having driven we got to bring loads back too.
Know we will return to the region again and will certainly return to Gite de Brives we loved it.

“Luxurious relaxation”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

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 & Glyn, who were friendly and available without being intrusive. The beautifully maintained pool and sun terrace were the main focus of our, all too short, week but we also made good use of the other facilities such as the table tennis, badminton and boules. After a busy day lounging by the pool nothing could be more perfect than enjoying a barbecue on our private patio and settling down to watch the stars rise over the vines and sunflowers which surrounded us. The location is perfect, rural and peaceful but with fast easy access to some beautiful towns including Cognac and Saintes. So perfect that we booked for our next stay, two weeks this time, before we left and we really can't wait.
